Ilse Noir shares a personal story about one summer day, a muddy lake in Montana, and facing up to personal fears . . .
EXCERPT: “She seemed so free, yet I could not get past the murkiness and the bugs. I was getting deeper and deeper into a funk. I stood there, wanting so badly to just jump in the lake. What was wrong with me? Why was I frozen with inaction?”
