I just read your article “in between.. “on Skirt magazine site loved it. But strange curiosity hit me seeing you don’t reside in Oregon now. You went home. How long did you stay???
Hey, Cindy! Thanks for checking in! I lived in Oregon for 3 years (to get my doctorate) and then had to move on to find a job. I lived in Minnesota for 4 years, and am now back in NC. I am glad to be back, and needed the 7 years away as well. It’s been quite a journey!
ms.briggs…i know your heart, i hear your song, we are kindred spirits on a similar journey…yet you are so much farther along than i. i can envision a similar life for myself, but past decisions have left me with different sets of circumstances and responsibilities (namely two little girls aged 3 and 7!). i long to be a writer- feel a passionate call to be heard; “i have something to say!”, my heart cries out. but i lack the courage and the commitment to follow through with anything more than a long email or journal writing or first paragraphs of essays and stories. anyhow, i admire all that you’re doing with the sophia project (even the name- i love it!). i, too, feel a deep need to use my life in some way to empower young women and girls. you are an inspired fellow traveler who is making a difference by living her truth. i am both envious and grateful for you and the light you bring to the world. thank you, allison ragan
Thank you Allison! Let me ASSURE you it took me years and years to get started writing. A few years of saying, “I want to be a writer” but not actually writing anything. Then a few years of journaling. Then a couple of years of blogging under the radar… it has been a long process to be here now. Have faith! Keep moving forward!
Thanks for the post on money. I think we’re never satisfied, that we continue to want more, regardless of what we just acquired. I learned long ago that material things cannot sustain happiness, although having financial security goes a long way toward peace of mind. For me, that security, combined with doing something that feeds my soul are more important than great wealth. One way I have always lived cheaply is to live in modest, inexpensive housing that happens to be located in nice places. I’ve traded carpentry for rent. I’ve traded part-time caretaking for lower rent. I’ve lived in places some would consider too small or not luxurious enough….but with great views and quiet. Most of my places have been small, forcing me not to accumulate lots of stuff. I have never wanted to worry about making the mortgage or having to cover unexpected expensive repairs, so my approach has worked well for me.
