My social media apps have all been full of Thanksgiving, end of school year chaos and Christmas preparations – the joy and complications of family. The latest edition of the Segullah journal tackles the same topics.
The essay “Cinderella” by Naomi White moves from childhood memories of what family looks like and means to a more mature and complicated understanding, while Merrijane Rice’s poem “Sister” explores the intent and possible trauma of reaching out. Elaine Rumsey Wagner’s peom “Truth Beautiful” is a touching, lyrical exploration of her grandmother’s teachings. The gorgeous work of Robin Clonts continues to grace our journal’s pages.
May we all find hope, happiness and beauty within the journal during this Christmas and our personal heartaches.
