Saturday Good Reads

Doug Spurling consider the daughter he loves so much; Jerry Barrett looks at his ailing mother in her final years; Jeanne Damoff ponders her daughter and son-in-law (and granddaughter) leaving for mission service. Megan Willome encounters a zombie, while Brendan MacOdrum encounters another kind of evil and turns the experience into an extraordinary poem. J of India manages to capture color in remarkable ways. And Tom O’Bedlan reads chapter one of the book that truly opened my eyes to the world of writing. It was a great week to read things online.
