my name is colleen.
i am a mother.
i wasn’t always a mother.
since becoming a mother, it has defined me in a very profound way.
i have now reached a time in my life where i am searching for myself outside of mother-hood.
this space – i am hoping – is where i will find her.
why walk the woods?
ever since i can remember i have felt drawn to the woods. as soon as i step in i feel a sense of peace come over me. whenever i have been confused about my life or upset i could go there to find my answers and i would feel calmer. there is magic there.
