The Fairfield Review
About The Summer 2000 Edition
Welcome, new readers and old friends, to the Summer 2000 issue of The Fairfield Review. We are very proud of this issue and excited to introduce you to it!
Since we left off with the Valentine's Day theme, start your journey with the passionate Pink Ladies, by Pat Mooney. Once in the spirit of spring, catch Gillian Grozier's Fleeting April, a fun romp with language. Next, trot by Taylor Graham's Bulb and Seed. It surprises and charms. To be dogged about this theme, go next to Then Maggie Cut Left, by J. Peter Nelson.
Take a turn towards our lazy summer days, lie back on the grass, and enjoy The Nonsense of Clouds, by Kristen Campbell. Then wander down to the water and let Kristen Huston tell you a fishing story in Angler's Heaven.
Next, we'd like to re-introduce you to Nancy Row Scott, who debuted in our Winter, 1999 issue. Nancy is a visual artist who also writes poetry, and we were struck by the visual nature of these pieces. Start with Birth, then Storm Warning, and finally My Father's Decanter.
Following in the theme of nostalgia and memories, turn to The Package, by Nan Leslie. Sam Silva takes an interesting look at the seriousness of life in The Judgement and Its Pain. Another view of light and darkness is presented by Doug Tanoury in Voice of Bartimaeus. Rosemary Gwaltney turns a descriptive eye towards the fall with October.
And we end, where East meets West, with Yuki In Albuquerque, by Dennis Holt.
Finally, our classic poem is Edna St. Vincent Millay's Counting-out Rhyme. This is a poem to walk with through the woods, and taste the air and words as they roll off your tongue.
You can find a complete list of this issue's writings in the table of contents and information about contributors in About the Authors. Please send us your comments and suggestions. When you visit our site, please fill out our Guest Book or drop us a note via email.
We thank you for joining us again. Now, we shall succumb to the torpor of heat and humidity in Connecticut, sipping iced tea and lemonade, swinging back and forth in our hammocks, watching the skies. When the wind whips cool again, bringing us back inside, we will return. In the meantime, please be sure to send your thoughts, poems, and short stories. Brush the sand off your latest great works and send them our way! We'll be watching the shore for them....
