Starting my book

Light at the End of the Tunnel

By Alina Skye


 The idea of this book was born long before this day, but it is starting now – March 18, 2009 at approximately 10:50 a.m.

After battling with my situation for over 15 years, it suddenly came to me: “I should write a book about this experience”, after all, I have something to write about, I don’t have to imagine it, it happened, I am living it. And so it starts.

 I have to make a correction. It is now January 27th of 2014.

I can hardly believe that 5 years have passed.  After writing just a few chapters I have put my book on hold. Until now.  The events that took place are real. At times it is painful to write about. Since 2009 my situation haven’t changed…

 It’s important to have a purpose in life; in fact, it’s one of the most important things there is. So, I’ve found my purpose for now, to write this book and tell my story. As it is, just as it happened.

I hope, that my book will help someone to find the strength within, in order to make a change. As I am writing this book, I also hope to find this strength within myself as well.


About alinaskye

Hello, my name is Alina. I am a local artist and a jewelry designer. I have lived and worked in Nashville for little over 5 years now during which I have discovered many interests I am passionate about, including painting with oils and acrylics, mixed media and jewelry design. Working in an art environment, I currently work at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts, have greatly inspired me in many ways. Skye is a self chosen name, which I think best suits me. It represents the sky and heavens above, vast and ever-changing. It came to me when I allowed myself to accept that there are as many opportunities as they are stars in the sky; through the process of soul searching, letting go of fears and doubts –self-made limitations. From that liberating process a new idea and dreams were born, and so did Alina Skye. When I started painting it wasn't out of casual interest or to adopt a new hobby, it came from an intense desire to somehow project all the various emotions and feelings I was experiencing at that time. I needed an outlet for my creativity. Somehow I wanted to convey my personal experience of life through art. My influences are everything I see, feel and experience as well as the things that I've come to understand along the way. My artwork is deeply personal and rewarding to me. Through art I hope to transform a simple perception into something deeper. Symbolism is used to convey ideas that are sometimes overlooked in the business of our everyday lives. I hope to inspire others to look at ourselves as more than just a mere physical body, but to uncover the beautiful immortality of spirit that is hidden within us all.
