Giving My Self to the Wind
This classic collection of short stories, poems, and essays will take you to new places. Kathryn Atkins forages “the musty, cobwebby place between my ears, and the sweet, squishy place in my heart” to explore themes ranging from the natural world to music, architecture, friends, and family, and other life events begging to be exposed and handled. At times humorous and other times sad and serious, these short works are the result of a playful, feisty, and oh-so-clever Muse!
When I wrote the poem "Light the Light," I had no idea I wanted to be a writer. I had given a copy to my mom and forgotten about it. When she presented me with a hand-stitched sampler with the poem on it a few years later, I was truly surprised...barely remembering that I'd even written it! Isn't it cool? Our moms are the best. And you'll get to see the poem in its entirety in the book.
