1st line by Alice Folkart

That Thanksgiving, like every Thanksgiving, I watched the grownups, praying for them to drop dead of food poisoning, right off their chairs onto Grandma Pearl's burnt-orange shag rug, so that I could have all the pecan pie to myself.




It's not easy to write on Kailua beach on Oahu's windward side. The large sea turtle that Alice Folkart uses as a desk for her laptop keeps waking up and heading out to sea. Some of her short stories and poems have been lost to the waves.

Alice - I meant to compliment you on your bio, too, in the email. It must have slipped my mind. Good work!
