Greetings on a gorgeous July day! Now that the fireworks frenzy is dying down, maybe we can all turn our attention back (it may never have wandered) to some good reading and writing. I have a new nonfiction essay just published in Blue Lyra Review, titled "Under Sand and Shadow." See: www.bluelyrareview.com
The essay deals with the wanderings of a fallen-away Catholic, formerly "good" girl -- that was me! -- as she attempts to make sense of some of the world's spiritual beliefs by hiking in the Arizona desert. Give it a read and let me know what you think.
Copies of my award-winning chapbook, "Ring of Fire, Sea of Stone" are still available, signed by the author and mailed postage included anywhere in the U.S., for $10. If you would like one, please send me a note at <Scatchetpoet@gmail.com>.
The older I get, the faster summertime flies by. My husband once tried to explain the whole faster-passage-of-time thing to me. Alas, I never took high school physics and it was too much to wrap my brain around. Wherever you are, get out into that sunshine, take a hike, dig some clams, play with your dog, pick berries -- the charms of summer are numberless and fade fast. Happy July, everyone.
