On the Threshold
At the Albany State Museum, our respite after traveling from San Diego, my friend Ahouva and I came across the following Native American prayer:
Welcome my kinspeople. Let us refresh you after your long and difficult journey, and let us give thanks to the Creator that we are alive to see one another again.
To travel from Albany to Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs to attend the 30th Annual International Women’s Writing Guild (IWWG) Conference, "Remember the Magic," was indeed a return to “kinspeople". We were ready to board the bus. The magic had already begun.
