And the Journey Begins…

The-Design-Work-Antique-Maps-4I am a very private person by nature and am not accustomed to sharing too much about myself with people whom I don’t know… until now.

Telling my family’s story in my soon-to-be-released book, Echoes Across Time has been a challenging and rewarding experience and I am excited about sharing!

I am also very excited to hear your reactions to my book and the articles I post here in The Journey blog.  Maybe you’ve had similar experiences.  Maybe your family’s story is totally different than mine. Either way, I hope you’ll take a moment to comment so we can all learn from each other’s experiences.

    Congratulations, Rosa! These are important stories – of the heart, of history – that need to be told. How wonderful you have embarked on this journey to learn them, and to pass them forward. Best wishes always, Grace

    Dearest Rosa,

    Your blog is an inspiration! I just read an article about South Korean women choosing to live alone (gasp!) despite society’s mores. It reminded me of our conversations waaaay back in college. I’m so happy you’ve been sharing your journey. What courage! I hope we can reconnect soon,

    From one extremely private person to another,
    virtual hugs,

    Laura ’87

      Hi Laura,
      Wow so great to hear from you! Thank you for your support. Would love to read that article about South Korean women. What my grandmother was doing was just that – living alone in Japan back in the 1930’s despite society’s expectations. I am still working on capturing her story so we can remember that smashing stereotypes is okay in order to live an authentic life.
      I do remember those conversations waaaay back in college fondly. Hope we can talk again soon. Saw that we are connected on social media now so we can keep up more. Take good care!
