Welcome to Segullah

anderson8May is a transition month as we finish up spring and move into summer. The weather here in Western Washington turned early this year, and the last few weeks have been filled with summer temps and hardly any rain. My plants are confused, and so are my students and my children. Everything is screaming that it’s time to be done with work and spend the lengthening days playing and resting. It surprised me when Memorial Day arrived…it felt late, as though it happened ages ago, and its arrival brought an unusual sense of déjà vu for me.

This season more than others in recent memory, I’ve found my thoughts turning to those beyond the veil and how and why those of us still here honor and remember them. Both of our pieces this month wander along the theme of this most recent holiday as well.

In Caroline Tung Richmond’s essay “Midnight Thoughts of a Military Wife,” which is a favorite from 2009 which we’ve reprinted before, a young woman considers her connection to her solider husband, the fears which wake her in the night and how she manages them.

Another favorite from past years is Heather Halcrow’s poem, “Obituary,” is both a stark and subtle piece about what we are left with when a loved one dies.

Wishing you a gorgeous spring/summer transition—
