Exposing Herself is all about a road trip that I took in the summer of 2008. I put a sign up on my business that said "closed for August, just like they do in France" and off I went in my little silver bullet van for one whole month.
I know it is hard to believe but I love the prairie landscape. Many people will roll their eyes at this, especially when they have grown up in the mountains. For me, however the prairies are ripe and rich, full of visions that inspire sudden and bursting oooohs and aaaahs- so much so that if I am travelling with someone they will get accustomed to my outbursts instead of their stomach doing flips thinking that I am warning them of something.
This trip, then, was off to the prairies, all by myself, which as you have heard can be exciting enough.
The book, that I hope all of this blogging will achieve is a collection of writings and photos of that month away. Exposing Herself is the title which suits a few meanings- One, the prairies themselves are very prone to making one feel exposed and two, travelling alone as a woman is a kind of exposure to many feelings and opinions and fears and experiences....
Enjoy my ramblings, please.
