Gathering Up The Beauty of the World

New snow in Garrison, New York.

That’s what I’m doing up here. And after a long, hard year, I’ll take it. The indifference of the seasons, and of the mountains, will always be the things that set me free from the confines of my tiny little mind and its forever game of “why?”

There is no why. There is only do.

(And a high five or fist bump to all of you who catch that reference. Heh.)

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.
