Karen Walrond and I had the most wonderful conversation about everything that matters—the reinvention of life, the integration of pain, the nourishment of creative effort, and the importance of pivotal 'white space' moments.
"This might be one of my most favourite episodes of The Make Light Show," Karen says. "My friend Kate Inglis lives the kind of life you imagine all talented writers of fantastical children’s books live: in an old sea captain’s house on a wild, windy coast with a history of rumrunners. And that’s where Kate joins me to today, as we talk about unspeakable loss, and creating a life afterwards that is filled with beauty, and resilience and most of all, self-compassion. So grab a cuppa (if it’s filled with rum, we won’t tell), and join us." Have a listen!
