Letter from the Editor

After just finishing this issue of The Promethean, the same nagging feeling reduces me to simple frustration: I know that there are potential witers out there who have thought about contributing but have not. It is not only that I value each piece submitted, but it is because I know that people are moved by and enjoy reading the works of others.

For instance, I'm willing to believe that Amy Westlund's "Homecoming" will stir the thoughts of those who have been lucky enough to travel and rouse a sense of curiousity in those who have not. Hidden meanings and not so hidden impressions of the world are to be found in the poetry of Randy Bush--whom I thank for being a regular contributor--Robert York, Tim Benton, and another author who chose not to reveal his/her identity. I wonder why? This piece is exceptional and speaks to something we may all find of vast importance.

Again and again I will ask that every reader of The Promethean make a point of submitting something . . . anything that may shed new light on an old subject, spark the interest of the reader, provide thoughtful insight on an event, character, or subject, or simply entertain.
