I’ve arrived. I’ve been looking forward to this trip to Kauai for months, ever since I booked my reservation for the Kauai Writer’s Conference. There have been other trips to Hawaii over the years, but never to Kauai and never for such an important reason. Other destin...

Summer is leaving me and I am sad. The air outside is damp and cold even though it is not yet November. I feel cheated. I want more. Summer has always been my time; a time to run free, my bare skin wrapped only in the breeze.

Looking back on the path that brought me here, to this precise moment in this exact spot, I realize how each seemingly insignificant decision, every choice I made and the turns I took along this journey, mattered.
