Welcome to the Raft

Lone raft is a collection of stories, journals, poetry, and music that share my story of domestic abuse, alcoholism and addiction, mental illness, and my journey in treatment and recovery.

The title Lone Raft is defining image that has followed me throughout my life, derived from a poem written in my mid-twenties.

I hope you can find some inspiration here and share in the journey of change and perspective as I navigate the waters of recovery.

-In Gratitude

Lone Raft

I am lost at sea, searching for an oasis to call home.

I take shelter on passing ships, making idle chatter, and sample what life could be.

The sun sets, the tides change, as I move on.

Searching, for something else.

I can see the shore, but never reach it. How I wish I could.

My lone raft is lost at sea. Searching, waiting, wishing,
Someone, something will rescue me.
