I just got a copy of the inaugural issue of a local literary magazine, Greenwoman Magazine; A Literary Garden...First of all I'm very excited that local writer and editor Sandra Knauf is living her dream of launching a literary magazine with a focus on fiction, nonfiction, poetry, commentary, biography, art and comics. And I'm of course enthused that gardening is the thread that weaves the issue together. As Sandra Knauf says in her editor's letter, "I believe in the transformative power of connecting with nature."
Yesterday we held our monthly haiku meeting at a local garden center. I sat with six other women of various ages from 18-70+ and we wrote Asian forms of poetry inspired by the beauty around us...by the end of the meeting we were all quite aware of this power. Look for my review of Greenwoman Magazine this week!
