Welcome! Lenkaland shares my adventures in creative photography, raising two kids, writing, living with chronic illness, raising a daughter with dyslexia, and swimming with mermaids. Hope you have a nice stay!


Steel is stronger than me.  I cannot bend or break it. Yet I can call a welder to come and liquefy it.  So ha, I am stronger than steel.

Same goes for my nueropathy.  Yes, it brings me a bundle of challenges every single day.  And yes they are stronger than my force of will.  But I choose how to respond to those challenges.

I will be frustrated sometimes.  And annoyed.  But I get to choose.  Will I battle today?  Or dance?
