I love your posts, Whitney. I hope your hiatus isn't too long.
Your comment about baking your cake is something I can relate to as of late. Yesterday I decided to make pumpkin pie and dessert really is a novelty here. I loved the process and of course the smells of the spices. The kids were elated, and I received the greatest compliment from my 4 yr. old, "Mom, you're a great maker!" She made my week. Creating ("making") brings me joy.

I love Robin McKinley's retelling of Beauty and the Beast. It's one of my favorite books. I also love the VIP letter idea. Enjoy your blog hiatus, but I also hope it isn't too long.

Hi Whitney,
Thank you for your posts. They have kept me company and helped me make sense of some life puzzles. In particular, your post about name/identity reminded me that our identities are work in progress that will continue to evolve as we hit milestones. Now that I am the mother of a 10-month old, I feel a completely different person.
Enjoy the holidays,

"I'm going on hiatus for a time ..."

Could you give us a clue on about how long? Days? Weeks? Months?

Best wishes.

Don't be gone too long, you're my higher education source ;-) I related too well to #2, about reinforcing the I. I think you've hit the nail on the head for me, as I stay home with my babies, I have no reinforcement, and look inward for myself, and find it through cooking. I too love the process and end product more than consuming. Thanks again. Amy Jo P.S. Hope your holiday was wonderful.

Happy Holidays!

What I love more than anything is cooking. I even reached out beyond my normal 'repertoire' and baked a few items for the Thanksgiving - being creative with food and nourishing my family and friends gives me deep and abiding joy.

This holiday season I am giving thanks for dear friends, I really believe they are what keep you going when times are hard...

Happy holidays, Whitney! I'm so glad you enjoyed "Spindle's End." And I just noticed that you have "Till We Have Faces" listed on your favorites. Yay! One of my beloved books as well. Come back soon, and hope all is well.

About this blog

  • When I took a sabbatical from Wall Street to pursue a different dream and help others live theirs, I learned that women in the U.S. may be placated, even pampered, but because we aren't dreaming, we are also desperate and depressed. Drawing on a variety of sources, ranging from academic studies to pop culture, dare to dream encourages us to dream. And then to act on our dreams.
