The smell of old books.
Mork & Mindy.
We all collect these little slivers of delight among the daily splinters of life. From childhood to adulthood, our protagonist guides her audience through a personal chronicle of life's joys in the face of her mother's depression. Do water fights and roller coasters also get lost in the void, or do the bright spots burn true?
Content Warning: Although presented in a lighthearted manner, the inciting incident of this story is an attempted suicide.
