Memoir invites readers to search for self behind ‘Blind Curves”
Here is a review of one woman’s journey to reinvent herself. Learn how author Linda Crill embraced a whole new way of looking at life in her memoir “Blind Curves.”Can you see yourself taking off on a 2,500-mile road trip on a motorcycle – when you don’t really know how to ride?
After losing her husband and business partner at 57, the identity former Citigroup executive Linda Crill envisioned for herself no longer seemed to fit. Like many of us, she found herself asking, “What now?”
Desperate for change, Crill signed up for a 2,500-mile road trip down America’s Pacific Northwest coast with a group of experienced motorcycle riders. At the time, Crill had never ridden anything more powerful than a bike.
From barely passing a basic riding course at the local Harley dealership to cruising along the Columbia River, rolling through hills of California wine country, winding up on the side of a snow-covered Cascade Mountain volcano, and discovering the summer beauty of Washington apple country, Crill learned sometimes the answers we’re searching for are behind doors we’ve labeled “not me.”
“When the unexpected occurs, the answers we are searching for are often found around ‘blind curves’—the unknown,” Crill says. “This trip opened my eyes to a new way of being and became the catalyst for recreating my life.”
Crill’s new memoir, Blind Curves, recounts her surprising adventure and shares the important lessons she learned along the way.
