Season of Miracles

The December 2015 issue of Sasee magazine is aptly titled, "Season of Miracles."

I love the cover of this issue. It's eye-catching and memorable, with one woman with a broad stride who stands out from the crowd. The woman is dressed in black gloves, a red dress and matching shoes, with a tiny black-and-white bow on them. Just from looking at that cover, you can imagine that woman is going places.

I'm pleased that an essay I wrote titled "Sweet Memories" is included in this issue. The story might bring a tear to your eye, but it ends on a hopeful note. If you get some time, click on the link above and read it. Another local writer, Linda O'Connell, also has an essay in the same issue.

Here's wishing you a joyful Christmas season filled with sweet memories and maybe even a miracle or two.

  7. Donna--I'm doing Cathy Hall's challenge, so I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you. Thanks for your tips, the links you include, the call-outs you share. Thanks for nudging me several years ago... And now I'm nudging YOU. How 'bout that book of yours? We're all waiting for it, would be thrilled to be a beta reader of it, and drooling in anticipation over it... so get working on it. As June Carter Cash sang, "Time's a'wastin'...
