Glenda, our poet laureate
Posted by Sandy Ross (story circle facilitator) On Tuesday, December 5, 2017
Glenda was held in fond regard by those in our monthly story circles at her residence. She began most every session with one of her own poems -- typically humourous, always well wordsmithed. Her good nature and love of sharing will be missed, though ever remembered. We'll honour her when we meet this week for our circle, and will say her name with thankfulness for having had her as a mutual friend. Peace and healing to you, her loved ones. /Sandy Ross, Word's Worth
