Yeah, that’s me on my own horn again.
When I went to the mailbox this afternoon, lo and behold, there were my contributor’s copies of Ocean magazine. It’s a lovely little journal. They published a prose poem of mine called “Lessons of the Carolinas,” which was written for my mother, who showed me, well, everything. But mostly she taught me how to see and love the complex beauty around me both in my back yard and in my travels.
This comes at a really good time. Well, getting published is always good, but I’ve been despairing quite a bit lately about the state of publishing and my own writing goals. It’s a given that I will write. It’s just nice to feel that my writing’s still viable out there in the wide world of folks who don’t know me.
I really like that Ocean Magazine offers both print and electronic versions of its issues…satisfies everyone!
