From the Author:

I began writing this book for women like myself - born early in the baby boomer generation - who have a sense of being trapped somewhere between circumstance and possibility. We were a group of women, who, for the greater part, did what our own mothers did, which was mostly what their mothers did before them. At the end of World War II, a new world emerged. Would the babies of those years evolve as their own individual person, or would they be moulded, once again, by the patterns of past generations? This would take many years to become obvious.
            Women like myself spent our lives looking after our families, and always putting others first. As the years passed and we grew older, we looked forward to the rewards of our many years of hard work. But, life didn't always deal us the hand we expected. Illness crushed some dreams; elderly parents drew on our time and energy, grandchildren needed to be cared for while our children continued in the work force, and the stock market crashed. Retirement often brought the unwelcome.
            As I continued to write my stories, I realized that there could be many other people, of all ages, who felt trapped in their own circumstances, and who may well enjoy the alternatives that my stories offer.

From the Back Cover:

Wisdom in Retrospect
64 lessons of life that many would have experienced at some time or other.
      My stories are written as an encouragement to think about what life is teaching you, an invitation to look at what you have set aside, and an opportunity to look at life from a different perspective.
      They are written to help give meaning to your pain, awareness to your past, optimism to your future, understanding to your chaos, and help you discover happiness in unexpected places.
      As you glance back with insight, may you discover wisdom hiding in the shadows.
 
For the past fifteen years, as a reflexology practitioner, I have sat in the presence of thousands of feet. As I sat, I learnt about life. As I pondered, I recognized myself. As I opened my heart, I realized that every person who belonged to those feet was a reflection of me. They were showing me areas of my life, beliefs, or dreams that needed my attention.
 
I realized that everyone who I once thought did things to me, were actually doing things for me. They were drawing my attention to areas of my life that needed change or acknowledgment.
 
I recognized the outdated behaviour patterns and beliefs that I had learned as a child; patterns that still ran my life as an adult.
 
I came to understand that power and control would be wielded over me, until I came to claim them as my own.
 
I saw that there were nine year cycles in my life, and many things ended in the final year, and much began in the first.
 
And now as I look back, I see how so much that made no sense to me fits perfectly into its place and its time. I see how so much of what I accepted as thrust upon me was in reality my own creation; drawing me ever closer to an awareness of what I am doing here on the earth, the possibilities I have before me and my freedom to choose.
 
Lessons of Life
What did my children hope to learn by choosing me as their mother?
If I chose my life circumstances, then it followed that my children chose theirs
 
Reflections of myself were all around me, but I wasn't ready to recognize them
Like attracts like; I needed to identify the core issue shared with others not focus on its expression
 
Imposing my values; I wasn't treating others as I wanted them to treat me
If I wanted the freedom to be me, I must allow you the freedom to be you
