Thought I’d offer up a little change of pace. I penned this story during my time spent in Almanack exile. Since my return, I’ve had intentions of sharing it at some point.  Based on recent articles, discussions and commentary, it somehow seemed to me that time was now, & this story was apropos to today’s moment.

    What a great story! I enjoyed that.

  3. Thank you both, Mark & ADKresident. I appreciate your comments and am glad you enjoyed this story. And to everyone who took time to read it. I must admit, I submitted this to Melisa with some trepidation. I was not sure how it would be received, but the response has been amazing! Caught me completely off guard. I even received several text message comments on my cell (flip) phone! (Thank you, Bob M.) And, of course, Thank you, Melissa, for allowing me to share another story with all your readers here at the Almanack.

    Excellent! Thank you.

  5. Thank you, jj & Mark, and to all my friends here at the Almanack. For any who might have interest & care to join me, I plan to be at The Adirondack Center for Writing (15 Broadway in Saranac Lake) on Wednesday, September 20th, at 7pm for another open mic reading at their bi-monthly “Barkreaders” event. It’s a great event, first a featured author reads a few select passages from their latest book, followed by an open mic, where area writers can share up to five minutes of their work. Lasts about an hour. I plan to read a pair of poems at the open mic: “Serenade of the Loon”, & “Where Sentinels Soar”. Another “Speaking in Tongues” survivor’s celebration moment for me personally. And, as always-drinks at Bitters & Bones afterwards- 1st round’s on me!

    Best wishes, Ranger!
