Story and Poem of the Week and Inspiration Point

No difficulty at all in choosing our Story of the Week this time - an episode of jeand's brave and absorbing account of her experiences of what started out as Bell's Palsy and has now taken an even more complicated turn. Please do read this, and the other parts of Jean's story. I know everyone on the site will want to send her all the very best: Janus Look 4 | ABCtales

Poem of the Week goes to smokejack's 'Undertow'. It's a swirling, hypnotic piece, with wonderful use of language. It's impossible to resist reading it out loud to yourself, and I for one hope that smokejack takes the hint and does a reading we can all listen to! Undertow (not as dark as it seems) | ABCtales

Have a good week!
