Darkly, hauntingly, eerily, ironically…beautiful.
Sherry Kappel

Dear Sherry Kappel , Thank you. Although many of my pieces are about personal trauma, this piece is a work of, shall we say, creative non-fiction. I have mashed together pieces of my life with the stories of other lives who have touched mine. I guess that’s what we writers do, even if our setting is another planet.

I do feel a bit weird shuttling back and forth between “true stories” told as “art” rather than “confessionals,” creative non-fiction, and pure fiction without giving my Medium community an up-fromt heads up. But, that eould spoil the read, I think. Look for the fiction vs. the memoir tag and that will tell you.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
