To All the Sweethearts:
Happy Valentine's Day darlings. I write this from a Seattle hotel room with my sleeping boys piled like heaps under the white sheets. Even the dog is snoring. We are all weary from our travels up here- not far, but still, moving all of us any distance takes effort.
Plus, I have news to share: in the Winter 2016 edition of VoiceCathers magazine, two of my poems have been published and are now available! It was a lot of fun working with the delightful editors. They were so helpful and hands on. The feedback was tremendous and I plan on submitting again in a year.
There has been a shift in me, purhaps subtle, yet noticible to others in my countenance.
I hope it overflows to you here. I hope you enjoy the poetry and article and celebrate with me, but mostly today and everyday,
I hope you feel loved. Loved in a way that makes you feel safe, in a way that allows your messes and encourages you to not be afraid. Loved in a way that makes you want to change.
Good night sweethearts.

Beautiful poems, Erin. I especially like Last Visit. Great word selection. Ha! I feel like an English teacher.
