If Ms. Marnie is confused (and she was) wonder I am confused! I am stymied as to what is happening here. Guess I'm dense or just not getting it...Perhaps I'll try again, as there are some beautiful scenes written in this piece.
The writer opens with a beautiful word-picture, but doesn't overdo it (which loses the reader), interjecting evidence of a real person at just the right point to keep things moving. I see "Daybreak" as either the experience of a dying woman slipping into eternity, or someone in the twilight between wakefulness and dreamland.
You did a masterful job of alternating between Marnie's inner reality, and the "real" reality of her nursing home. Wow.
Hi, Jan--I've chosen this article to feature on the Front Page Showcase for the week of April 24th. Watch for it on FaithWriters home page. I loved it when I first read it, and I like it even better now!
Excellent choice for the Front Page Showcase. Beautifully written! This article has instilled hope in me that even though we may seem to 'lose our mind' to others, God still speaks to us as though sanity is our middle name. Thanks, Jan, for sharing these thoughts with us.
Jan! Congratulations! I caught your byline on page one, and recognized one of "my favorites." I'm so glad that even more people will get to read your work.
