For me, it's always been about the stories.
 
As a very young child I liked to watch people in airports and restaurants and conjure their stories.
 
I wrote through every class and life event, and then taught others to write.
 
Illness started a new chapter for me, one I turned into a book to help other patients through the choppy waters of long-term illness.
 
I've learned to search for the positive path forward and find the good I can do.
 
My life is still about the stories, and I will keep on telling them.

JoyWrites is the story of my life.

I am like that crane                flying through the darkness,

entering the magical wonder of letters

and emerging into a glorious blue sky, bright with clouds.
