Neruda: Your Laughter

pen + watercolor
inspired by Pablo Neruda's poem Your Laughter. excerpt here:
My love, in the darkest
hour your laughter
opens, and if suddenly
you see my blood staining
the stones of the street,
laugh, because your laughter
will be for my hands
like a fresh sword.

some good news

Two days after my wedding, when submissions aren't on my mind AT ALL, I check my email on my not-so-smart phone at an all you can eat Indian buffet. What joy almost punched me in the face when I read the tiny slice of the email that looked in NO WAY like a rejection! In fact, it was the opposite: an acceptance!

So, it feels fantastic to say I have a short story forthcoming in Interrobang?! Magazine!

When it's out for real, you'll be the first to know. :)

For now, you'll find me honeymooning in our LA apartment (and celebrating my other good news)!
