“The words a father speaks to his children in the privacy of the home are not overheard at the time, but, as in whispering galleries, they will be clearly heard at the end and by posterity.” -Jean Paul Richter, writer (1763-1825)
I am happy to announce that my short nonfiction essay, Death Comes Calling, is now live at Blue Lyra Review. This is an inaugural issue and I share space with many fine poets and writers including Marge Piercy, one of my all-time favorite poets. Many thanks to the wonderful editors over there; Matthew Silverman and Adrienne Ross, you rock! This is especially bitter-sweet as I wrote this essay shortly after my father passed away this past April. It is nice to see something positive come from something so sad.
