Judging Comment - Ivory Scarf and Pink Sneakers by Maple Tree points 7 - here we have another episode in what seems like a nightmare yet instead it's someones real life and that life is someone so beautiful yet someone that has gone through so much rubbish recently and still holds their head up high and makes time to help others who she deems less fortunate than her, I really like Andreas spirit in this and the fact that she holds even herself together.
This heart-wrenching piece from Andrea tore me to the core. A painful description of trying to navigate life while the worst thing that could possibly happen is actually happening. It is every parent’s worst nightmare realised and the line “I’m not the only mother who aches so bad that her nails sting from anxiety” really expresses the visceral pain. Much love to you and Robyn and I hope P&Q helps you feel a little less alone x
