This no doubt will seem too dramatic, but this series evokes that in me. Quiet and pensiveness evokes that in me. A few years ago I made the mistake of leaving some of my writing on my desk at work. Some of my friends found it and asked me why I kept it to myself. I elected to write a small book. Doing so led me to Maria Edwards and she pushed me toward MWSA. The journey evolved to place where I find myself today. My thoughts are not about what I have written nor how I have grown. They are about the gifts I have received along the way.

Stockings on the Fireplace
Wednesday night I sat at a bar in a local veterans club and listened to a WWII vet tell stories about his time as a top turret gunner in a B-17. He and his twin brother served in the same bomber squadron in Europe beginning in 1944. I looked at some of his pictures, listened with amazement as he spoke of his reaction to seeing enemy tracers sail by his head as he flew on 36 missions into Germany. His brother was shot down and finished the war as a POW. If I am fortunate I will spend some time with him one-on-one and get more details.
