My name is Alenka. I live in a beautiful resort town in Lake Tahoe California. Most people will think of our life to be a classic fairytale. Any fairytale can quickly turn into a  debilitating nightmare.

Lately I’ve been going through some stuff. But who wants to read another blog about other people’s life challenges? We all have them! That’s life.  However, sometimes it helps to know that we are not alone.

I am writing this for myself, to help my own coping and healing process. If,  however, I can touch and inspire and help just one person, this blog will be worth sharing. We are all the same in the sense that we don’t really appreciate what we have until it’s gone.

But why say more? All men live enveloped in whale-lines. All are born with halters round their necks; but it is only when caught in the swift, sudden turn of death, that mortals realize the silent, subtle, ever-present perils of life.
— Herman Melville Moby Dick

 I know that there are plenty of people whose challenges are much greater then mine. Yet, this is my story. So if you wish, follow along. Share your thoughts and experiences or share posts with someone you think might relate.  I’d love to hear from you!
