My Journey

From mind to paper and back again.

Chapter One – I am born

on February 19, 2009

The light hits home, blinding me after nine months in the dark. The warmth of her body cloaking me from the cold air outside. Dozens of faces stare down at me, strange and new all at once, I don’t know what to do, so I do what any new baby does. I cry, I yell and scream so loud my lungs feel like bursting. The cold metal of the scales gives me a fright as I’m jostled about from one pair of hands to the next until I finally make it into a warm blanket and the arms of someone I know. The smell is the same and once again I feel warm and safe.
