Twenty Days Last May

collage

I took one photo for every day of the twenty days I was in radiation treatment last May.  Here’s what happened when an artist friend generously taught me how to create a collage.  These are images from a time I’d rather forget.  But those twenty days are etched so deeply inside of me that my only way out is to weave that time into my very being.

This is why telling our stories – in whatever form – is so important.  By gathering our experience into a story, we make sense of random or traumatic events.  It is only then that we begin to heal.

    This is such a beautiful collage. I feel blessed that you are part of my life even though we see less of one another. Cheers my beautiful friend.
