Touch: The Journal of Healing



After Thoughts

When the last light dims from the images sparked in these pages, we hope your imagination was captured, and you are left inspired to have heard familiar stories told in a new voice.  Poetry offers us new perspectives, often expressed in few words, to reconsider how we view those daily and lifelong struggles we encounter.  It is exciting, and even breathtaking, when another's words seem to reach into our own thoughts, or express those deepest feelings, that we may have considered untouchable.  To all our contributors, we say "well done" and thank you.

Our next issue will be coming out in January.  Winter brings with it a time of recollection, of reassessing the past year, and looking forward to the next.  For those of you who are writers, as you look back over your year's work, we hope you will consider submitting for the next issue.  And as the kids get back to school, we watch the leaves fall, and get ready for the holidays, we hope everyone can find a few moments to remember that in each day, whether short or seeming to never end, there is that poetic world inside us where the things we cherish most live on and carry us forward to a new year. 

Thank you again to those who submitted and to all our readers.  Join us again in January, for the next issue of the journal!
