Wilderness Heals

Thank you for visiting the Wilderness Heals blog. Wilderness Heals is an all-women, three-day annual pledge hike that benefits the Elizabeth Stone House (ESH), a Boston-based emergency shelter, transitional housing program, and therapeutic community that provides services to women and children who are escaping violence and overcoming trauma. By encouraging hikers to set challenging physical, emotional, and financial goals, Wilderness Heals mirrors the experiences of hundreds of women who have sought help from the Stone House. Committing to hike is a way to grow personally while simultaneously standing in solidarity with women of the Stone House and women everywhere who are working to overcome the effects of violence in their lives.
Wilderness Heals 2011 will take place July 15-17, 2011. Registration materials may be downloaded here.

All Requests, All Night Long

Disclaimer: This message applies to any hiker who rides the Singing Bus on the way back to Boston. You fogies who ride the Quiet Bus can ignore this post. (You know we love you.)


In preparation for this year's Sunday night sing-along, several hikers are compiling a book of lyrics to ensure that someone besides Sandy and Sue can join in on the more obscure tunes. (I mean, really--who besides Sandy knows all of the words to "American Pie"?) If you have any requests, please e-mail them to Eileen Twiggs at eileentwiggs@hotmail.com or Sue Weil at hotweil@aol.com. You can also post them in the comment section below.

Here, I'll start: I request the Weaver's "Goodnight, Irene," Steve Goodman's "City of New Orleans," and that seventies childhood staple, "Free to Be, You and Me."

For the record, I also know all the words to American Pie...

I started a compilation last year after the hike. I'll see if I can locate it.
