Dear Friends,

 

Valentine’s Day is an especially perfect day to express gratitude.

All of you have my heartfelt thanks and appreciation for your patience while NOTEBOOKS FROM MYSTERY SCHOOL is in production.  My publisher tells me their printer is running behind schedule; please know that if you pre-ordered, your cards should not be charged until your books ship.  We’re hoping for a late March – early Spring release. 


With Valentine’s Day here, the count down to Spring feels palpable -
so the theme of this issue is the promise of good things around the corner.
Anticipation and fulfillment.


Your response to this site is a continuing source of joy and fulfillment in my life.

Happy Hearts Day!

 




Valentine's Day - Feburary 14, 2015




WHAT THE SMELL OF BOXWOOD PROMISED


An alchemical moment
on the side of the unknowable;
a marriage, yet to be revealed.
Summer's sexual smell
crushed and distilled into narcotic.
Deep, green musk; a blanket
of warm heavy air coaxing
a dream of the impossible –

a waking vision of the possible.
