A Statement from Reeya:

"I originally told a version of this piece at a local storytelling slam organized by a friend - by which I mean I totally winged it, off the cuff. It was received well, so I decided to polish it up and expand it and then see what else I could do with it...Life is short; there is no time to leave important words unsaid."
