Twenty-one: an age of body, grief and threshold
Twenty-one is an exciting and sometimes perilous age to experience and grow through. This creative nonfiction piece details my experience after turning twenty-one as I dealt with complications of body, grief, and threshold.

The piece is enhanced through the words and ideas of other authors that deal with the complications of being human. The result is a series of vignettes that detail the most important and meaningful moments of my year that speak to the larger experiences of body, grief, and threshold.
