Joy, your story has made me take a deep breath as well. I loved how you shared such a vulnerable story, you are so brave! I love how authentic you sound when telling it. I can see a picture in my mind of a girl, standing in the cold, having no one to turn to but herself… You inspire me. Thank you for sharing your story.
Joy, it is incredible the wisdom you offer in this piece. It took me many more years than you to understand we have to embrace it all, the hard and soft, happy and sad. And it is doing this that we are truly living. I also must note how striking and powerful I find the image you have for your cover. It is artistic and beautiful.
I really enjoyed hearing your story. Your description of the weather in Brisbane made me shiver even though I’m sitting here in my classroom at SIS! The way the sky would change so abruptly and chill would set in reminds me of the autumn in Oregon.
