Blooming: A memoir

O'Neil, Courtney Lund
Abstract
Blooming: A Memoir is a work of creative nonfiction about trauma, the body, faith, motherhood, nature, and disability. It's a story about how the first year of motherhood can break open the rawest parts of a body, a mind. The story, experimentally structured in the life cycle of the orchid, is told in three sections: The Bloom, Dormancy, and Rebloom. Nature serves as an act of faith, to hold onto, and make sense of the past as the persona comes to reimagine the future.
