"Annie's courageous ability to share the human experience with wit and charisma makes us realize that our lives are extraordinary." [Georgia R. B, Alaska, USA] ---
IN 2011, in the hope of beginning a more purposeful life, the author boldly follows an inner whisper and decides on a daring move across the continent.
UPON ARRIVAL, plans for her new life fall apart and she begins chronicling her experience. Day after day she tells the story of trying to stay centered, of teetering between a stubborn belief in happy endings and her current bleak circumstances, of being graced with illuminations no sooner forgetting them, and of standing strong only to be tumbled over by doubt. This book could have been titled: What A Quest For Purpose Looks Like For Most Of Us (who are not spiritual masters).
THIS FOUR-MONTH journey turns into an unabashed and often humorous spiritual memoir where twists of mind and inner radiance compete for the starring role as anecdotes, personal lessons and wisdom are shared. Throughout, scenes exude an uncommon candor and refreshing authenticity. Although this is the story of one, center stage belongs to the universal journey of seeking one's truth and self-empowerment.
THIS BOOK tells the tale of the alternating feistiness and surrender of a spirit and shamelessly exposes the nooks and crannies of an odd - though oddly familiar - mind. As she amuses us with her peculiar meanderings and nudges at our sense of self with her insightfulness, the author brandishes her journey as a revealing and compassionate mirror in which her unconventionality reflects the universality of the human experience.
---"Brilliant, zany, insightful and funny. It will make you laugh, make you cry and sing to the heavens. A triumph of the spirit. Encore!" [Allen B, California, USA]

These are exciting times and books like this are exactly what is needed. The world is being edged onto the path of awareness and mindfulness. Reading about how someone else manages their way onto that path in the real world is inspiring. When we can't quite make out the message of our own inner voice, it's nice to hear someone else's to nudge us along. It appears our voice's messages are essentially the same. Annie's candid unabashed chronicle of the roller coaster ride of trying to find her purpose in the world reminds me that I'm not alone on the journey of understanding myself and finding my own truth. Beautifully Written - Vulnerable - Courageous and Wise. #mindfulness
