Last week, Ed & I went to see Wild, a movie based on the book of the same name, by Cheryl Strayed.
The book is the autobiographical story of when Cheryl Strayed hiked the Pacific Crest Trail. This book resounded with me on so many personal levels. I initially bought it because hiking the Pacific Crest Trails is a dream of mine that I truly hope becomes an attainable goal.
However, the book is about so much more than a long hike. Cheryl Strayed gets hit by life hard and responds by letting her whole world fall apart. She makes bad decision after decision and hastily embarks on this hike.
Ed & I could relate to her plight in a number of different ways. We have each had our moments of being that wild woman and letting our lives spin out of control before us. We have each tackled our own trails, getting lost and found along the way.
This song by another wild woman about a wild woman truly captures the essence of being that woman who rings like a bell through the night.
Here’s to all of our sisters who take to the sky like a bird in flight.
