A writer, a baker, and an artist walk into a bar…
“Your blog is always a breath of honest, heartfelt, fresh air. It’s one of the few that comes to my personal inbox.”– From reader Keith C.
In 2015, I started this here ‘Donkumentary’ when I ditched the big-city life for a more rural, secluded one. I thought I’d blog about how-tos in that kind of transition, but instead, I’ve found grounding and space to finally start exploring and discussing mental and chronic illness.
Through time with my donkeys, methodical baking, and finally finding confidence in my artistry, I’ve made it my mission to be vulnerable, and share my stories, experiences, and works to help #BreakTheStigma surrounding mental and chronic illness.
Did you know: I’ve also published two children’s books, “Tink the Bravest Donkey,” and “Will You Be My Val-Equine?” I love doing author visits at schools and libraries, however, since COVID-19, I’ve not been able to visit schools in person to read to the kiddos. BUT! I am available to read over zoom! If you’re interested in learning more, send me an email: adonkumentary (at) gmail dot com.
“I’m sure we all have our anxiety or other hidden mental issues of guilt, fear, anger, whatever. You’ve put all of it in wonderful perspective. You are you and I am I. We are the same but different. Wonderfully written and beautifully thought out.“– From Reader Patricia A. on this post
