Dust & Fire Review

Dust and Fire is an anthology, a collection of poetry and prose, written by local authors in the Northwoods of Minnesota. It is interesting to note, the word anthology has roots in the Greek language, anthos – meaning flower, and logia – meaning collecting.

The stories are written by, and are about, women. Not the tall, leggy, ever-so-slender cover girl-model type of women, but real women – the kind that might carry a few extra pounds, the kind that isn’t perfect everyday, the kind of women that you see on the sidewalk, or in the dog food aisle of the supermarket.

On these pages are the heart and soul of roses, carnations, and marigolds; if you look carefully, you may see "The Scar" left by a careless admirer. If you read carefully you may even see a dahlia or two tucked in beneath the gladiolas, each of them different in their own way, but all of them similar in that they are reaching out to a passerby, seeking an audience, "Finding Water."

Another great blog man! What a 4 you are! I couldn't derive half the fantastic ideas that you come up with.
My site is a little off your topic but noteworthy. Why aren't you in advertising or better yet a "think tank". Can you teach this kind of creative thinking? Is it something you were born with? Keep the fabulous ideas comming!

Thank you all for the kind words. The creative juices are always flowing - it's hard to find time to let them loose - to find their space.
