Wit: Do you have it?

I actually found this piece quit interesting. What I got from it was that, there was woman who was dying but had already accomplished to much that really all she could do now is bask in her sucess. In every situation that she seemed to be a part of she had the oppurtunity to talk about her talents and what she had accomplished. How it all of it came to be were the most interesting parts of the story because it seemed to me that at times she only became sdo reknowned by acident. For example, the time the teacher told her to rewrite her paper. After redoing it it was published and recieved acclaim.

At times her side thoughts confused me and it was hard to keep up with but when I analyzed it for myself I noticed that whenever she was zoning off 9into space that it was, it was usually in poet form or she was just reciting in her head. this made me come to the realization that even though she was dying it was her work and accomplishment that was keeping her alive.
I must admit that in the beginningg I thought that this was going to be a story about a sick old lady who just liked to blab on about nothing but in the end I realized it was really a story about hope redemption and finding a part of yourself that is worth holding on to.
