Green Room - Week 32 - Day 2

I was going to post this last week, but the hurricane pretty much took everything else off my radar.

***

We have a really big and exciting release from a fan favorite Idoler oneonthefence!

This is her TRUE STORY of everything she has been dealing with over the years. We've gotten pieces of it in Idol entries, but this is the first time when it's all in print!

"A.E. Hayes wakes up in a bright hospital room on the afternoon of August 24, 2010, with no idea of who she is or what has happened to her. When her doctors begin saying words such as "traumatic brain injury" and "retrograde amnesia," she realizes that she cannot remember anything at all - including the man sitting beside her who claims to be her husband.

Guided by numerous doctors, hospitals, trauma units, her husband, a mysterious person known only as Starlight Boy, and an equally mysterious voice inside her head that tells her to seek the truth, Hayes sets out to uncover the answers about her rare condition. But is her amnesia truly all there is to her story? Through various sources, Hayes must learn about her startling and often traumatic past - and how that past may permanently alter the future.

Raw and riveting, Shattered: Memoirs of an Amnesiac leads readers down a path of darkness, mystery, and redemption - where heroes are often villains, fiction routinely gives way to fact, and how, ultimately, the truth can be both the disease and the cure."

:watching Jose heading this way:

We're getting the outermost vestiges of it at the moment.
More cool clammy humid mist/fog than anything else. The Cape and Islands always get slammed whenever something comes up the coast.

I just heard that Maria hit both Guadelupe and Martinique. Guadelupe was where they airlifted people who'd been hospitalized on the islands hit by Irma. They're showing the damage sustained on Dominica on the news right now.

I. Have. No. Words.

I saw headlines after the eclipse that went something like extreme weather to be expected after eclipse. Didn't read the article, don't recall where I saw it, but enough already!

Be safe, hon.

I am SO DONE with hurricane season. Even in North Georgia, half our town didn't have electricity for six days after Irma! My kids were out of school because of it all last week.

My heart breaks for the Caribbean, and all this makes me want to start collecting canned goods as the weather becomes more unstable. It's just crazy.

Working all the damn time, but I am reading SHATTERED now. It's good. I am slow. No time.

I am really at a loss for what is going on in our world lately. Tonight I stood in my office and held our library janitor as she cried because she had just seen videos all over social media of earthquakes destroying her hometown in Mexico. In broken English, she told me tearfully that she was so scared for her friends and family and so sad for all the children that had experienced this today because 30 years ago TODAY, September 19, when she was 12, the town was also rocked with an earthquake - seismos - and she remembers how very frightened she was.

I have no words. I feel battered and fearful.

I don't remember typical amnesia being one of her problems, but there have been so many recent medical scares and she's had to fight through so much that I jump at any sign she's doing well.

Such an amazing writer, AND an amazing person. Kudos to her!
