Never Stop Walking: A Memoir of Finding Home Across the World
by Christina Rickardsson

The Journey Begins
Umea, Sweden – Winter 2015

One sunny day three years ago, I woke up afraid. Terrified is more apt. I was terrified of living. I’d hit the wall. Everyone knows about that wall. You can hit it at different speeds. You can run, jog, or trudge into it. The faster you’re going, the more it’s going to hurt when you hit it, and the greater your injuries will be. It’s simple math, and equation that makes altogether to much sense. I had run straight into that wall at speak speed, as if I were running a four hundred meter race.

  1. Sounds intense…and so engaging. Thanks for sharing.

  2. This sounds like it is going to put you through the wringer a bit but it also sounds as though it will be enlightening.

  3. This sounds like the start of a good story. Enjoy.

  4. Not sure this one would be for me, but you never know. Hope you enjoy!

  5. Vicki – for some reason I can’t submit my link this morning?? Here it is, perhaps you have the magic touch and can add it?

    BTW – Not sure about your intro, I think I’d have to read some more and see where it’s headed.

    • I saw this on Amazon and although it’s not my typical type of read I decided to give it a try because if it’s rating:

      5 star 78%
      4 star 16%
      3 star 3%
      2 star 2%
      1 star 1%

      I’ve added your link.

  6. The opening drew me in, so I’d keep reading.

  7. I’m intrigued by that intro. I’d keep reading.

  8. Oh I like the beginning! Just based on that without knowing anything else about it I’d keep reading.

  9. It starts very good in my opinion, because it’s true about the wall.
