Laughter and Wisdom for Challenging Times
A new, locally published book, Jump in the Holes: and Other Small Ways to Live Your Biggest Life, by Rhode Island author Wendy Z. Lewis, blends spirituality with humor to produce what Lewis coins “kick ass inspiration.”
A certified reflexologist, Lewis operates Prana Reflexology, in Warwick, Rhode Island. She’s also a lifelong writer who has shared her passion for wellness as a corporate health writer for CVS Health, Rhode Island’s Lifespan hospitals and many well-known consumer brands.
Jump in the Holes began as a weekly blog. Busy with her corporate writing and reflexology clients, Lewis had plenty of story ideas, but no time to share them. When Lewis faced three major life transitions in rapid succession—a corporate layoff, divorce and her 50th birthday—she challenged herself to write a blog post every week during her 50th year.
She says, “I had weathered some of life’s greatest trials, and I wanted to share the wisdom I’d learned from their lessons.”
Jump in the Holes features the best of those essays in a refreshing departure from puppies-and-rainbows motivational fluff. Inside, readers will find spirited reflections inspired by naked bugs, clip-in cycling shoes, “fucket lists” and more. With wry humor, poignant wit and the occasional swear word, Lewis delivers practical, spiritual and philosophical wisdom for the realities of today’s world.
