“‘Housework is creepy.’ So said Gabrielle B. Burton at one point in her 8-year, 5-child marriage. I’M RUNNING AWAY…is the passionate chronicle of her journey from solitary frustration & quiet unhappiness toward self-knowledge and fulfillment. Now, with rare insight and sensitivity, Ms. Burton traces the long & ultimately successful struggle to discover her own uniqueness within the roles of housekeeper, devoted wife, and mother which society had chosen for her. ‘Radiates good sense…present a moment of recognition that many women will share…Gabrielle Burton has a lot to say about becoming a person in the context of a traditional marriage.”

Don’t Sit Down YetFor the next year I’m writing a blog and book, Don’t Sit Down Yet, about living fully until you die. The title comes from the fact that adult African elephants only sit down when they’re going to die. Are you #NotASitter? Hope you’ll join me.
