Lori, thanks for reading "Sage". Being in New Mexico was very much a dream come true for me. So glad you enjoyed the story!

Strangely enough I remember Margaret Atwood as a poet I read and admired long before she became famous as a novelist. I always thought she had amazing abilities as a poet and have to admit I was kind of saddened to see her championed in another discipline. I don't begrudge her the fame I just wish it was for being a poet.

Hi Lori-
Thanks for the invite. I read your story "Relics" and liked it very much. The details ring true. The ending is effective- tight use of symbols, without being maudlin. Cool!
As a former Catholic schoolgirl, I give it a hearty "hosanna". I'm glad to see someone is producing new work that's fun to read.
