Aww shucks Kait, thank you for visiting and commenting on "You Should Change at Jamaica". It really helps to get a friendly and positive pat on the back! Hope to begin reading your work shortly.

Kait, I appreciate your reading and response to "Linear A".
Thank you for your Forgiveness comment.
Congratulations Kate! Your story was selected for showcase here!
Most welcome, it was my pleasure.
K--Thanks for the fave on Sylvia Plath foreclosure. I have a son at Wash U., and my mother, father and in-laws all came from St. Louis. I recently came across a punk rock song from the 80s--"St. Louis Sucks"--but I always wished I'd grown up there.
Thanks so much for reading & commenting on "Mother Lies." We have a fave book in common: History of Love by N. Krauss. Magic, yes?
kait, i thought all birds are your birds, but if you strongly resonate with the swallow, so be it and i'm happy. thank you!
Thanks for the comments on "Suzanne"!
I studied English at the University of Pittsburgh (where I received the letter).
If you think it would fit in Like Birds Lit, I'd love to have it published.
