I thank editor Irene Toh for including “Tenaya Moods Shared” in Red Wolf Journal. Yosemite’s beauties – especially Tenaya Lake – are sources of spiritual regeneration for all who visit them. Covid has severed us from those beauties for more than a year and our spirits suffer. Words are cabnot substitute, but I hope mine will help a little.

Editor Matt Potter generously added a Yosemite reminiscence of mine to this excellent anthology. I like to welcome strangers to my campfire. Friend Chip? Not so much.
Aspens by Marlo Saucedo
Artist Marlo Saucedo completed a wonderful painting inspired by and paired with “Dawn Snow”, one of my Yosemite poems. I’m most pleased to share her accomplishment with you! It will be exhibited in Houston, Texas next spring, precise dates to be determined. I hope we can collaborate again soon. Here’s a link to her artist’s site:
I write few poems and most of them go through years or decades of revision before I try to share them. “Winter Sky” popped into my head a week or so ago and I found nothing to change. I thank YDP editor Jayne Jaudon for thinking so too! Here’s the link: http://www.yourdailypoem.com/listpoem.jsp?poem_id=3256
Third Flatiron’s new anthology focuses on the theme of longevity. Edtior Juliana Rew graciously included a story of mine among this collection of strong stories. “Abe in Yosemite” explores a major historical what if: how might Abe’s life have turned out had John Wilkes Booth failed to assassinate him? I got to spend time with Abraham Lincoln again, always a worthwhile thing to do, and I think I did some of my best writing. Here’s the Amazon link:
My reminiscence of a surprising Yosemite wildlife encounter was just published on the Braided Way website. Fruitful work with editor Laura Grace Weldon helped me smooth this piece out for her readership. I thank her and hope you’ll enjoy the story. Here’s the link:
Third Flatiron’s fall/winter anthology focuses on the theme of longevity. Edtior Juliana Rew graciously included a story of mine among a collection of strong stories. “Abe in Yosemite” explores a major historical what if: what if John Wilkes Booth had failed to assassinate the President? I got to spend time with Abraham Lincoln again, always a worthwhile thing to do, and I think I did some of my best writing. You folks be the judges. It’s coming in October.
