Breath of a Town
By: Michele ClenDening

Ivanof held my attention, begging me to listen to his story. His deep windy whisper entered my open ears and lingered. "I. . .am. . .free. I am. . .free. . .from this dying town.  I gave it birth.  It gave me. . ."

The Window Kisser
By: Lee Smith

Girls act funny; they ain't like guys. You know Margie, across the street? She was my favorite friend --girl friend anyway. No, not girl friend, no way! Jeez! Like a friend and a girl, get it? Anyway, now she's gone. She's gone, and we ain't going to see her around here anymore.

Letting Go
By: Mariann Reinke

"Grandma, it's Mariann. You called me Arlene."

Her face contracts in confusion. "I did?" The wrinkles dig deep into her face. "Did I tell you Joshua Kemp is coming from Indiana?"

"Yes, Grandma, you did." I try to sound calm. How long can a person's brain work, anyway?

OUT OF MONTANA
By: Norma Sadler 

Margot said nothing. She did not like hunting or fishing. Or Monday night football.

Nick knew this. He tried to make things right. "We will have such a nice time, hunting cougar," he said.

"It's pretty to think so," Margot answered.

Sweet Release:
The Music of Jacquelyn Brown

Review By: Loretta Kemsley

On her album, "Awakening: The Breath of Life," Brown's clear soprano blends with the pluck of her harp string, creating an aura of soft introspection easing the ache of a weary heart. This album evokes the relaxation of candlelight or, conversely, the earth's celebration at the first light of dawn.

The Results
By Diane Payne

Though I'm only 39 ( I can use the word "only" in limited context, such as discussions of mammograms and retirement cities), I have been on this six-month sentence for the past three years.  Thus far, only one doctor has suggested removing my breasts as a preventative measure.

In Transition
By: Sara Strozk

One of my friends has a relative everyone calls "crazy Aunt Katie," probably because she does things like sending my friend refrigerator magnets with mottoes like "Don't Congeal!" Goofy, to be sure, but she has a point.
