Kate is my niece, her first piece of nonfiction that has just been published on Annalemma
She has taken a real experience in her life and made art. 
I wish I could do that with my work.
It's a quick read that has long lingering thoughts for me about how I observed these events.

  1. Thank you for sharing the link.

  2. that was an amazing essay. honestly I read it because I have been in the position of wanting others to discover the talent of someone close to me who is younger and looking for an audience. so I thought, my turn, I will reciprocate what I have asked others to do here with Kate. So I read the essay. I don't know what I expected. I guess I had no expectations. I am in awe of the writing and the content of the writing, both.

  3. Dear Patti and Marchi, thank you both for reading her essay. Marchi, I'm glad you can appreciate my desire to share Kate's talent. I am in awe of her and I'm glad you are too!

  4. This is a wonderful piece of writing on mental illness. My family has had mental illness in the family, and it is so wonderful to see it without stigma. Sensitive, compassionate writing. Cathy Valentine

  5. Thank you for your meaningful comment Cathy.
