Remembering - Vanya Erickson

Remembering published on Sweet Lit

Remembering Published on Sweet Lit

My life is loaded with events that shake me to the core. Sometimes when deciding on one to write about, my topic is so deeply personal, I wonder, What am I thinking? I can’t speak about this!

Exposing the truth is an ongoing battle raging in my gut, every single day. But I know that if I can somehow manage to get it down on paper, something will shift inside me. There is power in words arranged in just the right order, that help us heal.  They comfort and underscore our fragile hold on existence, reminding us that life can change in an instant.

So dear reader, I am thrilled to share with you that one such story,  Remembering, was just published!  I’d be honored if you read it.  I’ll let the words carry you to my world on one cloudy March afternoon, thirty-one years ago.

    Vanya’s masterpiece about losing her child is beyond stunning. Not only is she a tremendous writer, she is also very brave to bare her soul, feelings, memories, realities. Please let her know how moved I was and still am, from reading her words.
