Om Blind Curves
A widowed woman finds new life on the road in a memoir that is ';much more than a motorcycle diary. It is about overcoming loss and reinventing oneself' (Library Journal). Recently widowed and feeling adrift in a drab, uninspired life, fifty-seven-year-old Linda Crill had tried to follow all the one-size-fits-all advice she could findand she was still miserable. Then, out of the blue, she had an idea. Trading her corporate suits for motorcycle leathers, Linda committed herself to a 2,500-mile road trip down America's Pacific Northwest coast on a Harley Davidson motorcycle. Along with a group of fellow travelers, Linda undertook a white-knuckled, exhilarating road trip from Vancouver, Canada, to the wine country of Mendocino, California. Along the way she encountered washed- out mountain roads, small town hospitality, humming redwoods, and acceptance from gentle, caring souls who just happened to have tattoos and piercings. By heading into the unknown and rounding the ';blind curve,' she faced her fears, revisited her core beliefs, and discovered not only a broader range of possibilities on the horizon, but also the fuel to embrace them and make them happen. Funny, irreverent, and extraordinarily honest, Blind Curves is ';a must-read for baby boomers hungry to change the direction of the second half of their lives' (Long Rider Magazine).
