Uncle Noel's Story

The spring issue of Up The Staircase Literary Review, containing my  story, Noel's Pictures, is up. 

It is thrilling to see my uncle's story in print.  He was very dear to me.  And although I had to fill in the blanks in some areas of his life, I like to think he would be pleased.

Brenda, I loved reading your uncle's story. I think you're right; he would be please.

"My memories of her are in black and white, faded and vague": This line has such beautiful imagery. Thank you for sharing. I also quite enjoyed "I tried to picture it in my four-year-old mind. But all I came up with was Paducah. On a Saturday."

Your writing is wonderful.
