Dedication

This trip and this series of essays and conversations would not have been possible without the help of my Kickstarter sponsors. You not only funded this trip but you were my encouragers and you had my back all through this process. You amaze me. Thank you for believing in me and my dreams. Dreams evolve and change, as this one did. There are many reasons why I've chosen to publish these stories this way, but the main reason was a gift to you. These people and their dreams and stories changed my life and helped heal me. I hope they will do the same for you. 

Special thanks to: Ronne Rock, Megan Webb, Randy Langley, Rachel Zink, Libby Norcross, Mary Ann Rouse, Ashlee Rohnert, and NONE OF THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE without the amazing Sarah Miller.

Take my hand. We have stories to live and dreams to build. Leave broken in the dust. Launch out, brave heart. The time for mutiny has come.
