Muse Media: Change and Junot Diaz

 Muse Media: Change and Junot Diaz

#Muse Media is a series of  simple posts, looking for our muse by mixing prose with other media.  If this was in the form of a Haiku with an image, it might be called a Haiga. For the moment,  let’s enjoy the prose of some wonderful authors.

“She would be a new person, she vowed. They said no matter how far a mule travels it can never come back a horse, but she would show them all.” 
Junot DíazThe Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao


I love this gutsy quote. The “in your face ” style epitomizes Diaz work.

Change is often hard, and I wonder how the woman in the quote going to succeed? 

In what ways do you manage change?
