Challenge: write about a life experience using only ten objects. This is about my life working in cancer treatment for over a quarter of a century, things that I see and my patients see too.
I am expanding a little from Christine’s original as these may seem insignificant things but they matter the most.
tears – mine, theirs, ours
a smile – starts with mine
two pairs of hands – his and hers intertwined
loud machinery – it devastates
cold room – but warm people
warm hands – mine!
balloons – graduation day!
lead door – I am alone
soft music – we are just outside
a straight back – survivors all of us
