From an epiphany on Charles Street in Boston to a Howard Johnson Hotel on Houston Street in NYC by way of Appalachia and Kansas City, follow the white girl in her search for God.
I come from the do it yourself generation, coming of age after World War II. If you needed something - a new dress, adding a room for a baby - you did it yourself because everybody else was too busy to help. That has stood me in good stead during my life. When problems beset me, I looked inside myself for answers. How to balance my own desires with my responsibilities to my family. Taking care of my mother during her decline and death, struggling with my husband about home and career, worrying about my son's growing up and finally discovering the solution lay in understanding that whatever I wanted to do, I had to do it myself. Looking back on it now, I take it all with a grain of salt. My struggles and travails amuse me, after all, I made it this far didn't I? So that's what TRANSIT is about: surviving the blizzard of my life. I hope you'll come and see me talk about it some evening.
