A Second New Publication! “Girl Feelings” on Eunoia Review

Girl Feelings is the sequel to The Brass Ring.**

I thought she was a girl. Clear girl feelings. I didn’t tell Cliff because Cliff didn’t even want to let many friends know we were “trying.” I had begrudgingly accommodated his caution, telling only my closest friends. Then, when it was the last thing I wanted to discuss, I had had to tell them the baby died.

I am having boy feelings.

New Publication! “The Brass Ring” on Eunoia Review

And if, like me, the bride comes from a long line of screw-ups in the “for life” department, if she harbors fears that she might lack the strength to be anything other than that which begat her, it becomes a great deal more pleasant to focus on the flower arrangements.

From The Brass Ringnow featured on Eunoia Review.

Please take a moment to read it, and perhaps comment. Editors love those comments!

More on upcoming March publications

fetus in uteroI have a tendency toward the (I’m gonna go with) charmingly distracted Thus did I mistakenly announce that the two publications upcoming in The Eunoia Review were “Are You There, Avatar, It’s Me, The 70s,” and “The Brass Ring.”

Heartfelt, yet inaccurate. “It’s Are You There, Avatar … “and “Girl Feelings.” Strict blooper on my part.

Girl Feelings talks about the importance of naming babies, even if they don’t make it to being babies; about how, “friends remind me that in Buddhist philosophy, a woman doesn’t lose a baby. The baby chooses different parents. I want to cave their hippy skulls in. Why didn’t the baby think I’d be a good mom?”

Girl Feelings originally published in 2010, in the magazine Literary Mama. It will re-publish toward the end of March in The Eunoia Review.
