About Lisa Gray

About me

My name is Lisa Gray. I live and write and mother and form my opinions in beautiful Winona, MN, a smallish town along the Mississippi River.

About the title of this blog

When I started this blog as a container for my writing, I needed a name and the word Restless kept popping into my brain. For as long as I can remember, I have always felt a bit unsettled. I used to look at it as a bad thing, but now (finally!) I understand restlessness keeps me curious, passionate, and involved in my world. When I don't like what I see or simply do not understand it, I write and speak out in order to create meaning from my confusion. And because there is always so much happening in this world, there always seems to be something that fuels my restless spirit. My last name Gray just happens to tie in well with my general belief that things are rarely black and white. And finally, despite being happily in my forties, I hope to always retain the spirit of a fearless Girl setting out to conquer her world. It all fits quite nicely, don't you think?


  1. So, do you ever feel frustrated by your pace? Maybe it's just me being a slow learner, but I am finally getting into what seems to be a groove that works for me. Let me know what you think!

  2. Your words flow. They tell stories. They are not hurried but they generate insight. Writing to the inner self is not an easy task but you do it well.
