The Unbound Body by Danielle Doby
At the young age of 34, and having spent three years traveling through the medical system in search of answers, Danielle Doby was given the news that she had an aggressive form of breast cancer.
At the young age of 34, and having spent three years traveling through the medical system in search of answers, Danielle Doby was given the news that she had an aggressive form of breast cancer. Everything she held to be true was thrown out of her grasp and scattered across the floor, down at her feet. What she didn't know then, that she soon learned, a global pandemic was nearing, and much of the unknown that lay before her would need to be traveled alone. In this unique offering, The Unbound Body explores her deeply personal journey with cancer through both poetry and memoir. She offers her insights on grief, joy, trauma, love, healing, and how one can move closer to life by choosing to offer their attention, staying present in moment and body. Doby's intimate way of storytelling strives to answer the questions, What defines a miracle? And, when do you know you've experienced one?
About the Author: The everyday moments, and the extraordinary moments, have always made the most sense to Danielle in words. In their cadence and their rhythm, in the way they can move a moment forward, or pull a moment to a slow stop. Where others may hear the conversation by way of what was said next, Danielle has always heard the space between, and all the words left unsaid. She began to write these words, those spaces, onto paper. In this has grown a truth she could no longer write just in the margins, as a maybe, or a sometime, but rather as air, as water, as basic survival. The lineage of women before her have always said to her in no uncertain terms that the time to be brave, is now. That the time to be quiet, is never. And how you choose to share, that is your heart-work. And this is Danielle's heart-work. And so, her offering is the words unsaid, in the spaces we need it most. It is the lonely spaces, the low-lit spaces, the dark corners, and the rooms we don't often go. Too, it is the top of the mountain spaces, the light rising through the curtain spaces, the 2 a.m. sitting on the kitchen floor with the people who know you best, in-love spaces, gently reminding you that you are never alone.
