Overview

Domestic Departures - A Midlife Crisis Safari by Dana Atkinson

What do you do when you realize the life you've spent seventeen years creating isn't the life you want? An intense and serendipitous relationship spurs a workaholic professional to confront this very question as she approaches the mirror of age forty. The answer author Dana Atkinson finds leads her on a surprising journey into herself, and into the heart of a continent of which she has only dreamed. What she finds is a self she has never met, and a home she has never known.

"I had not only lost myself in my career, but was letting life quickly slip away," she says. "One day as I was updating my business resume I came to wonder what a personal resume would look like should I try to write one. I never got past a blank page. That was the moment I knew things had to change."

When Dana Atkinson abruptly left her corporate career in 2001, she was Director of Field Sales for a toy and gift company. Domestic Departures is her first book, the result of three and a half years of intense traveling and writing.

Her travels in Africa continue to be a passion, driving her writing career as she now works on her forth book on the subject.

Dana makes you feel like you are traveling Africa with her. You see the adventure through her eyes in the most amazing way. I loved this book. The transformation of her and the tears I shed while reading it made me examine my own life. Please read and you'll see your own life through new eyes.
