Let’s try writing

In my ongoing quest for creative outlets, I’ve signed up for another online course, Alchemy: The Art & Craft of Writing.  Here’s my first posted piece:

An Intimate Moment… 

She stood there like a frightened child.  The water splashed off her naked body.  The angry wound which took the place of her right breast was the only clue as to why she was waiting.  My strong and independent mother wasn’t in that shower.  As I scrubbed with soap and cloth, I felt that I was participating in a centuries old ritual.  With each stroke the lines between mother and daughter became more blurred, more blended.  One small, intimate moment in time, and my place in the universe was changed forever.
