Are You Tending to the
'Gloom we have always with us, a rank and sturdy weed, but joy requires tending.'
--Author and writer Barbara Holland. You can learn more about her at her website. Given the long conversation touched off by our previous post, we couldn't help noticing that she says she "started out in poetry...but converted to prose when faced with a living to earn." Anyway, please don't hesitate to send us your stories about gloom or joy. Who knows? Maybe some stray comment from another reader will inject you with an unexpected dose of the latter.
