ABOUT MAL

WHO’S NEVER LEFT HOME? WHO’S NEVER STRUCK OUT?

To find a dream and a life of their own
A place in the clouds, a foundation of stone
Many precede and many will follow
A young girl’s dreams no longer hollow
It takes the shape of a place out west
But what it holds for her, she hasn’t yet guessed
She needs wide open spaces
Room to make her big mistakes
She needs new faces
She knows the high stakes
-The Dixie Chicks

WHO AM I? WHAT IS THIS BLOG?

Reflecting on my own experiences and feelings is how I find the depth I truly need to feel whole. I am selective in what I give my energy to and so this blog has struggled to be anything more than a log of progress, highlights and failures for years. But as I grow and learn the harder, deeper lessons of this unconventional life my mind constantly wanders through the true grit of my experiences. The hard stuff. The real stuff. The deep stuff. I feel compelled to start expressing more of what matters, not just replicating industry appropriate content for aimless consumption. I hope it doesn’t suck for either of us! Thanks for being here!
