“Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?” ~ Frida Kahlo
My heart is singing with gratitude to the @wanderlustfest team for granting me a scholarship. This weekend was abundantly, immensely, profoundly, mightily, extensively good for my soul. Breathing fresh mountain air, receiving love, energy, peace, and grounding, interacting with generous souls, and laughing with my friend, has given me the ability to rejoin my day to day life with a full heart, and greater patience. It is impossible for me to look back at any part of Wanderlust Whistler 2019 without the fullness of gratitude and joy.
I cannot ever fully express what this festival meant to me, and did for my soul, but I will try. This week, watch for a full review of the weekend on my blog (link in bio), as I try to verbalize the amazing event that is Wanderlust Whistler.
Originally intended to simply focus on book reviews, over time, KaliDesautelsReads has morphed into its own entity.
I write about issues that are near to my heart, be they political, feminist, motherhood, mental health, or, as the title holds, books.
A thirty-something Canadian woman in my mid-thirties, I have been "super married" to my high school sweetheart since 2006, and together we have two crazy, clever, kind, hilarious, wonderful kids.
My first book - How Not To Blog: Finding Myself, One Post at a Time is available on Amazon (in eBook formats for you clever tech readers, and paperback for those of us who love that new book smell!)
I have tried a podcast - it's still on Apple and Google Podcasts - but writing is where my heart is.
My life changed dramatically when my husband was diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer in 2018, and I am now a writer for a leading Canadian Cancer Non-Profit.
I am lucky enough to have a family that loves me and pushes me to be my best, even if it is outside of my cushiony comfort zone. I have a village of friends that nourish me, mentally, and spiritually.
Welcome to my thoughts. Sit down. Stay a while. Enjoy a cup of coffee!
