3rd Thursday Newsletter

Issue: 22

Date: November 17, 2022

Dear Reader,

With Issue 22 of the 3rd Thursday Newsletter, I think about the day when I
first hit send on Issue 1
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1EIRp5wlsnNaa2R3_jmiO9dRzTeF9lhzc/view?usp=share_link,
pushing this rag out into the world.

At the time I hoped that, like a kite, it would lift off into the wind on
its own. I imagined I would stand in awe, holding the string, watching it
soar on its own accord. Obviously I was (and still am) naive.

Although it didn’t take off like I envisioned, it has been my monthly labor
of love. It’s an opportunity to hold up to the world the events I follow in
the (mostly literary) art world that makes our South Sound such an
amazingly rich place to live.

A lot has changed in my personal life since that first issue; my own
literary pursuits have evolved and my life has become ever fuller, but I
continue my commitment to see this kite fly.

One of the organizations I support is AID NW - Advocates for Immigrants in
Detention Northwest http://aidnw.org.  AIDNW is dedicated to helping
those immigrants who have been detained at the Northwest Detention Center
(NWDC) in Tacoma.  In addition to being an advocate - a voice for those who
don’t have one - AIDNW gives these immigrants a touch of humanity during a
very difficult period for them and their families.

Support AIDNW on Giving Tuesday!

Campaign dates: November 10 - November 29

Updates

Wild Rose & Other Poems Sung by the Window, to be published in  April 2023,
is a collection of poems which revolve around stages of grief and the
healing process. Begun in April of this year as an ode to my Mom, the poems
encompass both feelings of loss from death and miracles of life from our
memories of those who have passed away.

The personal experience of writing these poems has informed the stages of
my grief; I hope that the poems can inspire the reader to reflect on their
own emotional growth through this shared experience.
