Joy Ride takes us through a decades-long search for something Karen Witt Daly felt she had lost, something vital to her aliveness and far more significant than losing her right leg to cancer at age 11. Fierce, independent, and determined, yet she calls the fruits of her search "luck," tripping over opportunities and bumping into generous beings who serendipitously appeared along the landscape of her inner and outer travels. The path life presented to this young girl upon which she would navigate to womanhood was rough terrain indeed, yet Karen used every bit of that rocky road to recognize its gifts and graces, to learn, accept, and ultimately triumph. With the discovery of a form of improvisational dance, clouds of doubt vanish and protective walls crumble, clearing the way for Karen to eventually understand the meaning of her search, then live the true purpose of her life. This is a very personal story told by an extraordinary woman with humility, honesty, and humor.
