The Beginning of the End

(excerpt from Road to Alaska)

It’s time for you to go

How a Split Second of Amazing Courage Changed my Life

How a Split Second of Amazing Courage Changed my Life

We perpetually act out of fear or love. At the core of every decision, the balance beam is skewed toward one or the other; we just aren’t always conscious of it.
