Little Worlds - Staring at Jenna after Chemotherapy


Jenna Nagle, after completing chemotherapy treatment for breast cancer, Guntertown, Madison County, 2019.


I love Jenna.
I love her openness and exuberance.
Her lack of pretension as she pulled off her scarf to show me her hair.
I love her strength to face the world.
Her life is in the moment.
The most human and real person I know.
But, being honest, and more than a little selfish,
what i love best about Jenna is that
she is always happy to see me. Always.
That is not the case with everyone I know.
And that simple gesture, that unrestrained pleasure in seeing me,
Always lifts my day.

Thank you, Susie.
