DETAILS ABOUT THE JOURNEY
Why is the topic so important?
What we do in our everyday experiences brings about important life lessons. We’re living inside the topic each day we inhale anew breathe. In These days and times, toxicity has settled in the environment. Just think about it: every day we wake up we’re on the battlefield fighting a war. And just feeling where there’s: good against evil; sons against fathers; daughters against mothers; nations against nations; drugs against diseases; and the list goes on and on.

Over three decades, Norstrom has unmasked the levels of relationships:
pain; abuse; emotions, diseases; work environments; trauma;
and its poison of unforgiveness. In the artistic world, it is those literary creations that demonstrate a measure of personal growth that magnifies those hurdles conquered - from darkness to survival, even her release from incarceration.
While growing and blossoming, she has maintained a healthier lifestyle . . . staying free of unhealthy relationships. Through her experiences, Norstrom has encountered a complete metamorphosis ─ releasing one identity for another. Living inside this transitional lifestyle she states, “I see myself as that long-blooming, rich flower waiting to attract those butterflies. It is there, I’ve come full circle having realized the dangerous effects of toxicity."
In a nutshell, this book taps into the cycle of toxicity. And the many relationships encountered. As we know, relationships are built on: people, animals, drugs, alcohol, diseases, work environments,
emotions, and battlefields. So the message reveals that life brings challenges and with each challenge there are lessons learned.
The story itself, it’s about the shoe prints, those symbols of life journey that are left by our experiences.
Not a Blueprint: It's the Shoe Prints That Matter
She’d been living there all the time. Her apartment was adjacent to mine, although we never had the pleasure of socializing. Mandy was dark-skinned, short, plump, and had long, thick, wavy, jet black hair. She was a very attractive woman. Mandy didn’t work but received public assistance. She was separated from her husband Baylee and had two beautiful daughters, Fern and Cindy. Fern was already seven, and Cindy was four years old. It took very little time for Mandy and me to bond. When she first spoke about her husband, she said, “Baylee was a pure jerk, and I had to leave him. He liked fighting about any little thing. My house is more peaceful not having to fight. I’m going with Joey even though he is married. We’ve been together three years now.”
