“[They] kept me from falling into the insanity of “Shelterization” which is a lonely pit of helplessness and hopelessness. I set goals for myself as a writer and poet...[I] was inducted into the International Society of Poets as a distinguished member... I have completed a screen play, have several outlines/treatments for future projects... My goal is to be a famous writer.”

~ Dona

 

 

Rather than dwell on the pain of her past, she celebrates her liberation from it, writing her stories and poetry,
bringing these experiences to a new level of appreciation... Throughout the narrative portrait, however, there are almost no indoor scenes. Dona’s world is not restrained by walls. She tears them down to create a wider range of vision...That is Dona’s life now, a renewal of her artistry, her fortitude, and her spirit.

~ Mara Jevera Fulmer
