StorytimeToday I received sad news today from my friend and fellow writer, Natalie Zee (coauthor of HTML & Web Artistry 2: More Than Code). Her roommate Wendy, age 25, died Wednesday, September 11 after a one-and-a-half year battle with skin cancer. Today I saw Wendy's picture for the first time and I was so touched by the life and joy in her face--especially those beautiful blue eyes. Those eyes tell the story of a life that was never really touched by illness. I wanted to share their beauty with you, too.
"Stories were once as important to survival as a spear or hoe. They gave counsel. They connected the living with the dead. Stories distributed the suffering so it could be borne."
