My Epic Quests
Traaki was born to young parents; natural talents both but young and untrained. She was a blend of her parents and a mirror of her sister. She trained in many things: Dance lessons, writing and editing, karate, jazz trombone, computer programming, bicycle mechanics, a whole slew of languages, anthropology, plant knowledge, humor, board games.
Her greater purpose eluded her for a long time. She was restless as she waited (patience was not one of the things she was trained in). She began unlearning things. She began going deeper into the few that remained. And she began to sort it out after her 32nd birthday. She began to see a world in which she wrote, a lot. Danced some. She began to see how she said yes to other people more than to herself. She began to say yes to herself instead. To sitting quietly. To staying home. To going on great adventures. To producing and sharing and becoming strong enough to handle that process.
