Abstract or Summary
  • This collection of creative nonfiction essays seeks to examine my expanding consciousness and the people and experiences that have contributed to it. The first essay juxtaposes competitive running and dancing, the second considers how food choices challenge relationships, the third unpacks an implausible friendship while paralleling an Audre Lorde essay, and the fourth details my experience in Vietnam. Repeating patterns include movement—physical, emotional, spiritual, and intellectual; relationships to space, others, and myself; and the challenge of narrating any story without necessarily simplifying or altering the details. The driving question behind my writing was about individual relevance and impact. Throughout the writing and revising process, I considered both how I fit into various worlds, and how those worlds have affected me. Key Words: creative nonfiction, essays, writing, English
