Everyone has a story. Some will never be told. Others are still unfolding. Yesterday on my outing with Peter, archaeologist and Heritage Manager of the @cabrachtrust
, our explorations took us into an abandoned home. We were both haunted by these slippers. What is the story? Whose feet did they warm? What scenes unfolded in this living room? Who else’s fingers brought life to the piano in the corner before mine? How many generations looked out the window as the seasons changed the isolated landscape around house year after year?
Many of you have asked if I’m going to write a book about my journey. I’ve kept putting it off because I haven’t “arrived yet.” But I realized as I pondered over these slippers, that there is always a story for a storyteller to tell, wisdom to share, and there are plenty of curious minds craving a story. My Pictish/Viking novel will be a huge undertaking of research - in the meantime, why not start writing down the story of me, what I've learned in life so far? I don’t want to become a pair of empty slippers, full of stories but without a voice.
So - I would love to know what questions you have for me to consider as I write? Don’t worry about being too personal. I vowed a long time ago to live an open life, to be vulnerable, to be a beacon for anyone who might need one. If you feel more comfortable asking privately, you are welcome to send a message. Ask away <3
