I'm delighted to offer "Where the Sanctity Lives" as a gift to you. Click on that frozen lake to download.
This essay was originally published in 2013 in Stealing Time: A Literary Journal for Parents. It's not available online and hard to come by in print. It's a deeply personal story, one of those ones I convince myself while writing that no one is ever going to read, but nonetheless I'm very glad that you're about to hold it in your hands. I hope you enjoy it.
My newsletter comes just a few times a year--I promise I won't be flooding your inbox--and includes news on upcoming publications, readings, and workshops, alongside some mini creative nonfictions, fiction excerpts, and/or whatever thoughts, ideas, and inspirations happen to be crowding my mind.
My warmest thanks,
