Note to reader: I am using this space and place to post parts of a new slip-fiction novel series I am working on, Left Brain Right, the story of a young girl who hears voices. I will not be posting the whole story, but I will be posting practical tips when dealing with someone, or one’s own self, as they are going through traumatic, or not so traumatic, experiences.

How today’s story excerpt can help you:

Theme: There are somedays when I feel as though I can have two completely opposite feelings all at the same time, like sad-happy.  I’ve come to simply call this: The Unity of the Juxtaposition of Opposites.

Today’s Story Excerpt: (Left Side)

August 23rd: Mrs. P’s Journal

I saw Michelle today. We didn’t quite leave off right where we started last year. She was quite and didn’t talk.  Yet, she showed me her supplies so that I could ensure she was ready for the school year.  I then went with her to her locker to make sure she know how to open it and get all of her supplies in. I allowed her to do this after all the other students were already in their first period class–less pressure, less noise.  Then, we walked to her first period class. At least when I said, “have a good day.” She replied, “you too,” no matter how quiet it might have been. She seems more sad than even last year. Yet, at the same time, relieved to be here.
