Journaling:
I couldn’t bring myself to read “When Breath Becomes Air” - Too depressing.
Then I ran into an essay in the New York Times titled “A Gay Husband, a Dire Diagnosis and the Best-Laid Plans” by Danielle Peress.
I thought it’d be the author’s ex who was ill.
But this woman probably won’t be alive two years from now.
I felt sad for Dr. Peress. I poked around the internet for old images of the city I myself trained in. I considered missed opportunities.
The essay was not depressing.

What a wonderful way to journal. I love how you placed pieces of the journaling throughout your layout and caught our eye with the big dots. The subtle pinks and brown are so striking against the soft gray background. Love this layout!!!

This is beautiful. Just found the essay through Google and read it--thank you so much for sharing. Very profound, and exquisitely portrayed in your artwork.

I read the article after seeing your page on the GSO site, so brave of the writer sharing her life and prognosis. A powerful page for sure!

Congratulations on the GSO. Beautiful work. I went to read the article. It's quite a story. I like how you've used the dots to draw attention to your own thoughts.
