TAKE HEED, ASPIRING WRITERS Fall Line is my memoir about adjusting to life’s missed goals. Research suggests that a third of us will look back on our lives and realize that we never accomplish what we most hoped to achieve. We will learn to put our goals aside, like outgrown toys, and get on with our lives. But we will always remember the ‘one that got away’ and how we adjusted to that loss. Fall Line is the story of how I plotted my course along this path. It focuses on my years abroad, primarily in Africa. In some ways, it is a story of finding the right path. It is also a last gasp effort to realize my original goal.
