across the miles
in letters bearing words
to lighten the load and keep hope
This has been a good year for Whispers. Part of the goal for the online journal when I started it, almost two years ago, was to connect writers from different circles. It is such a joy to see friendships developing. Whispers has had over 50,000 views this year. Thank you to each and everyone for your part in this accomplishment. Since inception over 170 writers have contributed their talents, ranging from age 12 to in the 90’s. I hope you feel our online journal is a welcoming community and will continue to enjoy the gift of words. Best wishes to all of you in your writing journeys. May you be blessed with joy in the New Year.
