Onward to another paragraph from one of my WIPs Last Dance: Watching Rocco, Joey is trying to get up the nerve to ask him to dance. But Joey sees the ghost of Donna Summer, which apparently heralded a seizure…


As my heels and head drum a tattoo on the lawn, someone will call 911. Another, perhaps a first responder, will move chairs and people out of the way, then kneel beside me. A jacket would go under my head and perhaps the person turns me on my side so I don’t choke.

Mostly they would only stand aside and watch. There’s nothing for them to do but ridicule or feel pity.

Otherwise, I’m not there, gone from the world as my brain backfires away, and like a boomerang, eventually I return.

  1. Love that last paragraph. And, really, aside from making sure that there’s nothing they can get hurt on, you can’t do much for them until the seizure is over. It’s a scary helpless feeling to watch one — fortunately they don’t usually last long.
