A collection of writings on authenticity and life.
Once in a while I like to step into my past for material here on my blog, and today I’ll be traveling out west and talking about a lifestyle I once lived.
A few years ago, I had the pleasure of spending an afternoon with Allison Vesterfelt and her husband Darrell. They were in town promoting her book, Packing Light, and wanted to meet up at Starbucks for a cup of coffee. Since then, we’ve become really close friends, but it was her story that really impacted me.
Back in 1998, one of my favorite musicians was Jewel. She had just released Spirit, a brilliant coffeeshop album, and reflected a lot of what she was going through at the time.
