Weekly Ruminature

St. Regis Pond, Adirondacks, 2010.

“Keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.”
—John Muir

[This is my new weekly feature—and read the puns in the name whatever way you will. I wanted to add this to balance out my questionings on this blog, because when I am in nature, I am very, very sure that everything is, and will always be, just as it should be.”]

About stacy

I am a writer, author, mother, former magazine editor (last at Redbook), optimist, and, above all, a searcher. I'm still searching for whom I'm really meant to be, after a series of very jarring losses: a divorce and house disaster that led to a book (Falling Apart In One Piece); a week after the book came out, my parents suddenly fell gravely ill, I resigned from my job (and, apparently, my career), my son went into crisis, my parents then rapidly died four weeks apart, and my boyfriend (who had moved in with me and my son just weeks before the book came out) began the painful journey of realizing we couldn't make our relationship work (that story unfolded on this blog). Since then I've been trying to figure out what's next. Or, in other words, how to fill in the blanks.

    That picture! Looking at it, I feel the same certainty. Thank you. xo

  2. I love the play on words (multiple!), and look forward to this weekly feature. With its inaugural photo, you’ve even incorporated one of your dream locales, if I remember…

    Breaking clear of nature, in order to break it open and expand it?
