Martha''s Journey, Renascence in a Mobile Home Park is the story of a recently widowed 66 year old. She finds herself alone, adrift, and uncertain. She makes a 1300 mile car trip, a metaphor for the life changing journey she must undertake. The subtitle word "renascence" represents the reshaping of her thoughts, her fears, and her sadness. In the mobile home park she finds the humorous situations, the pathos, the caring and the sharing of those around her change her outlook, lessen her sadness, and temper her sense of aloneness. This becomes the stage of her new life. She has found her role. Above all she hears laughter and she responds and knows that smiles etch her face. These aging physically hampered old folks still feel life''s force. Is that not an irony in itself? And she is grateful.
