Where did you go to, when you went away?
It is as if you step by step were going
Someplace elsewhere into some other range
Of speaking, that I had no gift for speaking,
Knowing nothing of the language of that place
To which you went with naked foot at night
Into the wilderness there elsewhere in the bed,
Elsewhere somewhere in the house beyond my seeking.
I have been so dislanguaged by what happened
I cannot speak the words that somewhere you
Maybe were speaking to others where you went.
Maybe they talk together where they are
Restlessly wandering, along the shore,
Waiting for a way to cross the river.
—David Ferry, “That Now Are Wild and Do Not Remember”

I also admire your passion.
I admire you and your writing. I would love to be a published author, but I am not sure I have anything to say!
Nicole Olea says
Maryann you’d be surprised how much one would have to say when you sit down with a pen and paper.
I imagine if you weren’t to write a fictional tale you could write about your expriences parenting Matthew and how it’s changed your life etc.
