Editor’s Note: Bring Your Own is a nomadic storytelling series that takes place in living rooms, backyards and other intimate spaces within the community. Each month, seven storytellers have eight minutes to respond to a theme. BYO airs on All Things New Orleans and is a biweekly podcast on WWNO.org.
This was October’s winning story, told at The P3+ Nature of Now exhibit uptown on Magazine street. The theme of the evening was “Labyrinths” and here, storyteller Emily Skelding sees a change in her mother, that makes both of them feel lost.
