I have travelled near and far, and to places in between but the best journey of all is the one that I took with HH. What a bold character he was, a beautiful musician. My journey began shortly after his but mine lasted much longer. In fact, I am still travelling. Oh how magical it all has been and how empowered I feel now. HH and I belonged to the same organization, well known as The League. I am still a part of it, HH is not due to his struggles with confidentiality and integrity. But enough of that for now, we will revisit the topic another time. As for my journey, now that is one you want to hear, so keep reading my friends because you are in for a treat.

My dear friends that have travelled with me so far are on this journey are Nellie Mclung, my grandmother and my mom. Nellie joined us awhile back after she fought for women’s rights. A woman like that is a true hero to have travelled with and her strength has helped me become stronger along the way. I believe a girl can do anything a boy can do but we can do it better.

This was a tragic mistake that HH had made along the way, was forgetting what he was there for in the first place. The biggest mistake of all that HH endured was the selling of his precious violin. When I asked him why he sold it when he had riches and health and still a love for music, he replied with “Oh yes, but sometimes a man no longer finds pleasure in something he previously loved. Sometimes a man sells his violin or throws it against a wall, or a painter burns all his pictures. Have you never heard of such a thing?” Once I heard his response I had realized that I had heard of such a thing because I have sold my violin too. Not a real violin, a figurative one, which stood for my love for soccer. I no longer find as much joy in soccer as I did when I young. This I find heartbreaking. HH and I are in similar situations, we have lost sight of the things that bring us pure happiness. These mistakes resulted in HH losing his way to the East. He was in
