For nearly four long years, Terrain.org has been publishing its “Letters to America,” series, determined, in the words of the editors, to publish “letters in the form of poems, photographs, traditional letters…each an intimate, thoughtful examination and discourse at a time when hate, anger, and the breakdown of civility and democracy seem to have gained the upper hand.”
Last year, they asked if I would contribute a letter. I now live outside America’s borders, but I’ve had a long and heartfelt relationship with both its lands and its people.
My illustrated essay just went up yesterday. I’m so honoured to be included within such a thoughtful and caring community.
