I can hardly say this strongly enough. With your gifts and your sensibility it would be verging on the criminal and negligent for you NOT to write about your life, beginning to end, as deeply as you can. If there is any knowledge we need (from as up close as can be had without danger) it is about the side of life that you KNOW about, you could show us. If that isn't a vocation, I don't know what is.

It's not as though I don't take my own advice.

I'm glad you do take your own advice; it gives me good reading.

We'll see, next month, if I have much prose in me.

Dear Sharon,
I am writing because I would like your permission to include your poem ‘Fibromyalgia’ in an anthology I am compiling of poems for people who are chronically ill and in pain. I love your poem because if expresses so well the way we are painfully divided in our mind between our past and imaginative selves and our present broken physical selves.
Please let me know if you like the idea.
