Close your eyes and you can almost smell the magnolia blossoms on the breeze and feel the wooden front porch beneath your feet.

July 2 – Kim Hoag, “Wool and Mystery”
Stories told as if by the fireplace: Myth not clothed in silk or velvet, but in wool and mystery; laughter, as it comes across the fields or from the wake. Tales peopled with the pains of life as well as the beauties of yearning.
