I “met” Gary Knox through something I’d written. That led to his reading Leora’s Letters, which lit a fire under this retired math teacher, widower and wood-carving hobbyist.
He pretty much disappeared from Facebook the entire month of January. When he surfaced again, he’d written, edited, read aloud, and had printed up more than 70 pages of memoirs!
Noticing the dialogue in Leora’s Letters, he also included some in his stories. Last week he messaged a poem, asking my opinion. Well, lump in throat, it’s just dear. February 15 is the anniversary of his first date with Verdeen in 1958, so today is the perfect day to publish his first poem.
