Hey, hey! This fall is shaping up to be ok, despite all the HORRIBLE that sometimes seems to be closing in on every side. Covid is still with us, unfortunately, and still taking its toll. But the trees are beautiful and there seem to be adorable little deer everywhere! (Be careful on those country roads at night, folks.) AND November 1st you’ll be able to read two of my poems, “Ghost” and “Grown Wild,” in the fall issue of HeartWood Literary Magazine. These two poems were inspired by my grandmother and are therefore very near and dear to my squishy little heart. She was originally from Kentucky, so I’m glad these two pieces were picked up by a journal housed in a university in Appalachia.
