About Of Hedgehogs & Hope
Although my story is uniquely my own, the experiences of my family are all ours to know. Chances are you’ll recognize many bits of what I relate and explore. In sharing my story, I hope that it offers glimpses into what it means to not just survive but to emerge with grace and compassion, scars and all, and that we are not alone in our reluctant reconciliations with family and ourselves.
Although this blog is mostly about my memoirs of childhood, adolescence, and early adulthood, it’s also a place to share lots of fun things—my poems, artwork, observations about the odd and esoteric, random thoughts on modern life, and morsels of pure silliness.
Thanks for coming along on this journey.
About the Author, Mi Ae Lipe
Since then, my interests have sprawled all over the place—art, fashion, architecture, automotive design, transportation, food, horticulture, nature, travel, books, and writing, to name a few. I’ve made no effort to contain them. Creativity and passion often make for an overflowing life, but their rewards are priceless.
In my half-century of existence as of 2020, it feels like I’ve lived several lifetimes. I look forward to exploring just a few more.
