Perfectly Free

“I can only become perfectly free by serving the will of God.”
– Thomas Merton
(No Man is an Island, Chp.3)

Hi!! My name is Claudia. Blogging is sort of a creative/therapeutic activity for me. I blog about being a wife, mother, student, caseworker, and simply being human through photography, words, music, and blog challenges. Mental illness has also been part of my life, so you'll sometimes find mental health and psychology in my posts. I've dealt with anxiety and depression most of my life. And my husband has bipolar disorder. My hope is that I may show readers that it is possible for people to live positive, productive lives despite mental illness, challenges, or frustrations.

  1. ah, Thomas Merton, the reluctant mystic. Found his freedom by embracing God. Thank you, Claudia. Have you read his autobiography, The Seven Storey Mountain? Beautiful.
