TAKING FLIGHT is a book that Heidi is currently working on. It is about getting "life" wings back after cancer. She tenderly addresses the subjects of death, grief and loss with raw honesty. She has collaborated with several experts to provide a plethora of useful advice. There are stories of survival, remembrance and laugh-out-loud humor. In addition, the pages are full of quotes, poetry and soul stirring photographs. The metaphor of wings anchors the book in the uncertainty of "flight". Sometimes we ride the wind, sometimes we fall, sometimes we flap too hard or not hard enough. TAKING FLIGHT embodies what it means to be alive, to let go and ultimately to grow from our suffering.
