Whatever form return takes—be it madness or vision—the writer's challenge entails not forgetting the complexities of both the shattering experience and the irrevocable change.
Rebecca Brock has lived in Virginia for nearly 20 years and still isn't used to the humidity. She has been a flight attendant for most of her adult life and is still surprised by this fact.
She holds an MFA from Bennington College and received a Virginia Commission for the Arts Fellowship in 2006. Her work has been published or is forthcoming in The Threepenny Review, Mothers Always Write, K'in, CALYX, & Mom Egg Review.
