A Brief Note

…in which to say, I am in love. With the sound of bugs thick around me. With being able to walk in my yard in the morning. With Zack’s sweet face staring up at me from the swimming pool.

I have so much joy. And YES, so much chaos!!

The balance between routine and discovery in life is so damn hard to find. But i am one-hundred percent in discovery mode. And will write more (and post pictures) when I come down somewhat to earth.

Whooo-whoooooo! The sound of a train whistle lows in the distance, echoing off the Hudson River.

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.

    I am in love with the sound of trains in the distance. I had them growing up in Iowa and in college, then I lost them in Chicago and Kansas City, MO. Now I have one again, and I love it.

    I love the sound of trains, too. I think because I am from such a small island that these sounds of life and transportation and movement are huge signs I’m in somewhere new, where something is always happening.

      Mona, I bet! I also think there’s something awesomely human about it — there’s a person in that big, lumbering train, watching the world go by. Happy to see you here! xo

    Discovery seems to also equal = recovery. So happy for you!

  5. Sherry says:

    Beautiful, Stacy. I share your joy, in my own way, too. And it is soul-filling.

    I, too, love the sound of the trains in the distance. I’m the editor of a local magazine and have been following your work for several years now and I’m delighted to find that we are now neighbors. I’d love to touch base with you when you have a moment.

    I’m so thrilled for you both that you’re loving your new environment! And train sounds are somehow soooo romantic. They let loose the imagination in the loveliest way.
