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 7 minutes to respond to a theme. BYO airs on "All Things New Orleans" and is a biweekly podcast on WWNO.org.

This was the winning story told on October 26, 2014 at The P3+ Nature of Now exhibit uptown on Magazine Street and later produced by Laine Kaplan-Levenson. The theme of the evening was “Labyrinths.” Here, storyteller Emily Skelding sees a change in her mother that makes them both feel lost.
