If you have a history of liking quick reads and want business as usual, this is not the book—or the pilgrimage—for you.

Midnight is Near
Women have a history of burning the midnight oil, staying up late to watch or wait or wonder or mother.
We might rather be sleeping, but when the hour is late and the issues are vital, the world needs people—women and men— who can see in the dark.

It's Time to Wake Up
Today, living in our own little worlds,
asleep and unaware, has grave consequences.

There are Big Conversations to be Had
Life is relationship. Family means more than genetics.
No one can address issues like race, class, and gender alone.
Join in and be part of the transformation of our world.

This is a Critical Moment in History
It's challenging. It's scary.
And it can also be fun.

I am Nancy Thurston, one woman aware that her history informs her present and that wide-awake relationships are essential. On these pages and in my book, I've shared my pilgrimage. I hope it supports your journey as we move forward together. Welcome.
