Last week brought the release of my essay “Lucky Day” in Proto magazine, which is published by Massachusetts General Hospital. The essay is part of the magazine’s “First Person” series, which “originates at the other end of the stethoscope, presenting essays and commentary from patients, consumers and other medical outsiders.”
“Lucky Day” is the fourth essay to be published in what I call my “Sunday in the City” sequence. I’ve mentioned this sequence before. Now, and with thanks to all of the editors who have made this possible, I’d like to present the essays in chronological order–not chronological in terms of either their composition or their publication dates–but rather chronologically insofar as the reader encounters them in a linear way, moving directly forward through the events described:
Yes, there’s one more essay idea that I’ve toyed with that might belong here. But for now, at any rate, I think that the series is complete. Perhaps you will agree.
P.S. At long last, I’ve attempted to (re)organize my website’s nonfiction writing page. Thoughts or suggestions?
