Hi Catherine,

I feel so much warmth, compassion and firey spirit from you - I just love to read what you write. It really speaks to me on a deep level.

I actually saw the movie "Wild" last night! What an incredible journey! You know what really was poignant for me?! The boots! When she has to make duct tape shoes because her too small boots that had torn her feet to pieces finally took the first step and flung themselves over a cliff, I felt myself in that - Letting go of those boots that don't fit, but not quite in the new shoes...in transition =).

It helps enormously to hear your journey - to hear the similarities of experience - never the exact same, yet familiar. Thank you so much for sharing so openly.

With love,
Jen
