Announcing the Winner of the Thyroid Queen Contest
THE WINNING ENTRY
“My Image of My Disease”
I wait and wonder as the black hole in my neck sucks the energy from my life. It
takes time and joy away from my children. It steals the last bits of romance from my
already stale marriage. No one really knows what’s deep down in there, no matter
who’s science we use to scan my curious gland. Multiple nodules; some hot and
some cold. They squeeze my throat like an oh so gentle gag. Will it all go away with
surgery or will I have to fight it forever? No one can tell me. I have no answers for
now. It’s only a black hole.
THE WINNER IS…. Anna Kyle is my choice to receive the drawing “Thyroid Queen”
– I can see the colors and the moods she is painting. It is an abstract view. A dark, but not
entirely black, abstract picture, with a few bright and gleaming streaks in it; leading
somewhere mysterious, somewhere hopeful, somewhere peaceful.
– Yeah, those are the images I see when I read Anna Kyle’s verbal painting. I like it very much.
Well done Anna! Congratulations!
