“The Choreography of Flight,” Creative Nonfiction, in The Remington Review

Though my mother had no formal training, she was an excellent dancer and taught all her children how it was done and the joy it could bring. All seven of us delighted in learning, but one of my sisters had more than enthusiasm. She had talent, the kind that deserves to be nurtured. But in a dysfunctional family like ours, where alcohol ruled, there was barely enough money for dinner, never mind luxuries like dance lessons. “The Choreography of Flight” is about what it feels like for a child to understand that a dream may never come true. https://www.flipsnack.com/remingtonreview/remington-review-winter-2024/full-view.html
