I had so much going on inside of me that needed to come out and my outlet once again became my art. I received the proof for my second book, It’s Simply…GOLDEN: 75 Years of Inspiration and looked forward to publishing my work. It was good to be back in Sausalito. I was able to get out and promote my work with local business owners. I stopped by the shops on Bridgeway Boulevard and met with store owners about carrying my books in their shops. Everyone was so nice and supportive and I was excited about moving forward in my career as a new author. Being able to combine my passions of writing and photography had been such a blessing, especially during this time of transformation.
Each day was a gift. Along with working on furthering my career, I continued to practice yoga and my relationship with Mathew was strong. He was a dear friend and kindred spirit. I was grateful for the practice. Mathew realized how important it was for me to have some sort of stability in my life with everything I had lost, and my yoga practice was just that. I wanted to keep my body strong and needed a space to calm my mind and sooth my soul.
