In 2006, I found myself on the high seas aboard a sailboat I knew next to nothing about handling. Was I mad? No way! The audacious escape from my home-town in Russia and the ensuing voyage across the world was my dream come true! I was with a person I loved, and finally, I was my authentic self.
Talking to the Moon recounts my very first steps toward trusting myself, listening to my heart, and eventually refusing to sacrifice my life for others’ visions of me. It’s been one heck of a battle, but the rewards have been infinite. I’m here to tell the story! I don’t live a lie. I am with Meg, and I am having the kind of adventure I wouldn’t have dared to dream of, back in Russia!
