The darkest night of the year, the moment when sunlight begins to grow and
re-enter our world. The Winter Solstice. Our 2010 issue of Mused celebrates
a renewal of our soul.
Handmade ornaments celebrate the natural beauty of wood and sea urchin. An
elderly lady in China waits patiently with her wares. An empty bench invites
you in for a rest.
A snowman ornament brings back memories of a gentler time. One poem
celebrates a youth of watermelon juice and dark chocolate. Another delves
the depths of a woman beyond despair.
Fiction stories explore the challenging world of Alzheimer's and the
crumbling charade of a failing marriage. Yet hope springs eternal, as
another relationship tentatively unfolds.
Non-fiction tales give us a first-person view of the immigration process, of
fighting through breast cancer, and spending Christmas alone.
Denise Mancuso, an artist in soap, creates visions too beautiful to eat. Her
mission for you - "Find what you like to do, and follow through"!
Read and enjoy the Winter Solstice issue of Mused!
