Ronni Bennett's readers are invited to submit their own stories to her blog for publication. This one is by Adele Frances.
This was the quote that began her story:
“There is little meaning in making a fuss. There is nothing else to do but say good-bye to the last body part and continue your life with what parts may be left.”
- Elderly Greenland native who lost two fingers to frostbite years ago. Smithsonian Magazine
You'll enjoy this a lot I think, for Adele's attitude as well as for her writing skill.
She's writing about losing a part of her body to surgery, and how that feels to her. She is an inspiration to me.
And yes, you are invited to submit your own stories for this blog! Essays, poetry, blank verse, whatever...
