Shouts & Murmurs 1: "The Fall"

Join us on Thursday, September 1st at Babylon Garden here in Richmond for the kick-off to our Open Mic series SHOUTS & MURMURS. We want to hear your stories, your poems, and your essays about fall, falling, the fallen (you get the idea). We'll get started at 8 PM. Hope to see you there!

So You Went to Lisbon... A Reflection and a Thank You

[Written by Joey Burke.]

Dear Deri,

Having returned from Lisbon, I can now send a proper and sincere Obrigada for your tips and advice.  Your suggestions were accurate and sensitive to my concerns about traveling with children in foreign territory. In hindsight, you could have taken a simpler path and followed the Hemingway Challenge of a six-word essay.

Get your passport and just go!

Or maybe:

Just go now.
Thank me later.
