When I was 18 I was diagnosed with an illness called Lupus. I began to chart the journey in poetry, filling many journals, always imagining the experience would eventually curve into a neat end, and the whole could be shared with others. I am 30 now and rather than ending, there are only beginnings and growth and life continued. Lupus continued.
So this is an experiment and an invitation to you to share the journey. Join me anywhere, in light or shadow, and you will have joined me then and now.
