New Horizons


“You can not swim for new horizons until you have courage to lose sight of the shore.” This is a quote by William Faulkner, Nobel Prize laureate.

This quote became my motivation to step out into a different world than the one that I had inhabited for twenty-one years as wife, homemaker, and mother; the world that changed when the “I do” became “I don’t”. It was my reminder that life goes on after separations, divorces, and even death.

When I lost sight of the shore, the new horizon held a new partner, self-employment, the publishing of two books, and a whole new spiritual dimension.

Take heart if your life seems to be stuck on the shores of strife…new horizons are just a swim away.
