Mel Bosworth: When The Cats Razzed the Chickens

there is something immensely beautiful about words that have been written, then printed on pages that then got folded by hand, and made into a chapbook, which then got signed by the one who has written those words, and put in an envelope, and sent over the ocean, to be delivered by a postman right to the place i live, some thousand miles away from where those words came into being and into print.

and then, to open those pages, and to find this dedication -

To my family and friends
And to you, dear reader, for giving those words life.

- followed by a collection of stories that i try to make last longer by reading only 1 every second day.

thanks Mel, for these stories.
and thanks Folded Word, for putting them on paper.


and here, the link to the joy:
