June Word Catalyst is up!




Hi, everyone... I've been out of town since Wednesday and haven't been able to keep up with any of your blogs. Sorry... I'll try to catch up this weekend. Just wanted to let everyone know that the June edition of Word Catalyst Magazine is up! There are lots of good poems, some nice artwork, photography, and one of my stories, "Seasons Beckoned Unto Night" is featured. You may have heard me telling you that I wrote it a year or so after my father passed... and I brought his ghost back for a visit. If you have a few minutes, I hope you'll take a look... thanks!

The artwork above is the cover for our upcoming chapbook of selected works from Word Catalyst.

Wow Bob, wonderful story. Well done.

Thanks, Tina... it was very cathartic. It helped me come to grips with some of my unanswered questions.

Will go looksee now and be back.

Jo said...

Well, it made me cry. Great, great story, powerful, emotive, very well written. The most poignant line where you said you realised he was so glad to be back looking at his home town......

((((big hugs)))) I'm just listening to comfortably numb right now, and by god it's sometimes better to be that way.

Jo-- Thank you for taking the time to read my story. I agree... 'comfortably numb' works sometimes.
