Issue 3: Summer 2018

Letter from the Editor

As we were preparing to take this issue online, I had this flashback to my final year at Austin College in Sherman, TX. Jim Croce was on his way to the school for a concert but his plane crahed on take off at the airport in Natchitoches. And these lyrics from Jim came to me...

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them...

Life has a way of making it difficult to find the time to pursue our calling...to write. Most of the time we get in our own way but life does throw up a myriad of obstacles that keep us from our literary pursuits. Car wrecks, illness, our 'second jobs' to pay the bills, and I am sure you could add to this mundane list. Authors, thank God, are a stubborn bunch and will go without food and the basics of life when the muse strikes, to put a few words to paper (or more likely a keyboard).

The authors that have contributed to eMerge have found the time to write and to share part of their humanity in words, in art, and in photography that affirms our common humanity. It is with great pleasure that we share their passions and stories with you...our readers.

Until Next Time,
I Remain,
Just an old Zororastafarian Editor with one wheel spinning in the sand...
