BATTLE-AXE|WORKHORSE is the memoir of a middle-aged woman who walks through the changed landscape of an extended period of loss and grief. She writes her way through the anger stage of grief, through the gradual acknowledgement of each missed opportunity to have loved others better, through self-punishment and the eventual arrival at a place of peace, or simply a place of being worn out.
“He in his madness prays for storms, and dreams that storms will bring him peace.”
