Rana Darwish reading her stories
Tonight, on Life Rattle Number 1210, we present three new stories from new Life Rattle Writer Rana Darwish.
Rana Darwish was born in 1985 in Cairo, Egypt, where she lived until immigrating to Canada in the winter of 1994. Her father, a retired Air Force colonel, is now a small business owner. Her mother stays at home to care for their five children of which Rana is the second oldest.
In tonight's second story, "Airport Standby," Darwish reveals an insider’s view that will belay some of the romantic visions you might have of the jet-setting life of a flight attendant.
With another take on new technology, tonight's third story, "First Date," brings us one step further as we tag along on the first face-to-face encounter of a young couple whose relationship began online. One from Toronto, one from Montreal, the two meet in Montreal.
Hoping to build on an initial attraction developed through email and phone conversations, our narrator makes mental notes as the day unrolls. Her generous heart always on the lookout for the good—despite appearances to the contrary.
