The Warrior's Stance is here!
Used to dropping boxes of publications at warehouses, the deliveryman from Neyenesch Printers was surprised to be greeted with tears of joy. After nearly two years of work, the boxes he dropped in a corner of my office are the fulfillment of a promise made to my late daughter, poet Laura Morefield two months before her death. Inside each book are her poems, mostly written after her diagnosis.
We need to talk, all of us, about loss. It is not a rare thing. It is something we all endure. The delivery man confided that his mother recently died. His nephew suffers from an awful, debilitating disease. We all lose; we all will be lost.
So put on your warrior garments and read this luminous, love- and life-filled work, so gorgeously produced by Neyenesch and so gloriously and lovingly designed by Patty Kevershan.
