Happy New Year!

The past few weeks I’ve been trekking around the northeast visiting family and friends for the holidays. It was fun but exhausting and I’m glad to be home. 

When I returned home I discovered that my two contributor copies of the New Plains Review arrived in the mail. My poem “Starling” appears in this issue and I’m thankful to be included in such a solid publication with so many great writers. 
2013 was a beautiful year and I’m grateful for all peaks and valleys and everything in between. 
It’s all I have to bring today

It’s all I have to bring today–
This, and my heart beside–
This, and my heart, and all the fields–
And all the meadows wide–
Be sure you count–should I forget
Some one the sum could tell–
This, and my heart, and all the Bees
Which in the Clover dwell.

~Emily Dickinson*
