Segullah Journal: Hope, Heartaches and Happiness

By Kellie Purcill

1C1A9389B4My 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.

lives way on the other side of the planet in her native Australia and gives thanks for the internet regularly. She loves books, her boys, panna cotta, collecting words, being a redhead and not putting things in order of importance when listing items. She credits writing as a major contributing factor to surviving her life with sanity mostly intact, though her (in)sanity level is subject to change without warning.
