This series, Three Peaks and a Valley refers to three positive moments and one negative moment that happens during a twenty-four hour period of my life. When I’m feeling down, my mom tells me to remember one positive and one negative thing about the experience: a peak and a valley.
Three Peaks and a Valley aims to outweigh the negative with the positive.
Three Peaks and a Valley is a regular miniseries that, by sharing my own moments of joy and vulnerability I hope that you’ll think about your own.
PEAK: I felt comfortable enough with my body and with my tattoos to wear a bikini on the boat ride today, even though several of them do not approve of tattoos.
PEAK: I took a walk with my sister and cousin down a dirt road to the Bomoseen State Park. Along the way, my sister Alexa half sang, half screeched Beyonce’s “The Best Thing I Never Had“. She did nail a few high notes though.
“What line did you nail, Alexa?” I shout across the kitchen.
“I don’t know, all of them?” she shoots back.
PEAK: My boyfriend’s family installed a deck in their backyard exclusively for the purpose of installing an above ground dog pool. Look at this. Just look at this. Just look.
VALLEY: I had a three-hour car ride from Vermont to Massachusetts today stuffed like a sardine in the backseat with a big wet dog. Both I and the dog were mighty carsick.
