Thank you, Melanie, for accepting and working with me on two short pieces that tried to find a common theme. I took a trip to see my birthmother, the spiritualist, and went to the Festival of Faith and Writing at Calvin College. All in the same trip! And man that was a trip! I think the commonalities between how spiritualists look at communicating with Spirit, and how Christians communicate with the Holy Spirit and “inspiration” are fascinating. And I’ll probably turn that into another piece one day.
For now, “As the Spirit Moves Me” and “Undercover at the Festival of Faith and Writing” are in Geez #27, forthcoming!
