August 2022 Edition

By Jessie Christensen

Editorial When I first read a draft of Elizabeth Cranford Garcia’s essay “An Apology for Speculation”, my mind turned to words I associated with “speculation”: spectacular, perspective, speculum, spectacles.

June 2018 Editorial and Table of Contents

By Sandra Clark

I dropped of my foster daughter of 9.5 months to live with relatives and drove home across the Sacramento delta through the sinking wash of light over the distant coastal mountains. The light bounced up in hundreds of rice fields, walkways of dirt breaking the glow at 60 mph. Sigh. Relief, release, reprieve. My husband …
