The Long Way Home --
A celebration of the road less traveled and the gifts found there. I've been following this dancing, twisting path for most of my life now. It's a path of adventure, faith, commitment, surprise and sometimes, loneliness. Some days I stride out just full of myself. Other days I am deeply afraid. But there are always companions along the way.
