Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems.
Rainer Maria Rilke
More daylight and less frigid temperatures make it easier to face whatever comes next. Spring 2015 seems fraught with political and global concerns. The unpredictability of larger issues, ISIS, Israel and Palestine, President Obama undermined by Congress, and the constant degradation of our environment add to the overall unease we're experiencing. So many things are out of our control, but our own behavior can add to a more peaceful agenda. One way to influence the outcome is to be true to our vocation as writers. It is not a simplistic or naive viewpoint, it is choosing an intentional activity, writing, over worrying and becoming a part of the negativity.
We would like to welcome Mary Jo Balistreri as an assistant editor at Tiger's Eye Press. We look forward to working with Jo in the coming months. You can learn more about her at: http://maryjobalistreripoet.com
