Notes from the Editors

Dear Reader,

No matter your spiritual or religious beliefs, it is always the right time to reflect on the good in the world. We editors of Spry consider ourselves pretty fortunate to have multiple, daily reminders about this good—through feedback from our readers, submissions, communications with writers from all walks of life, and in conversations with our fellow staff members.

As a result, this issue of Spry is lithe with writing that will move you in a number of ways—some toward gratitude, others toward empathy, laughter, anxiety, and even, in some cases, redemption. You will travel to the corners of wildly imaginative minds, learn about people, places, times long past—and all through the lenses of our wonderful authors and poets.

We invite you to spend a little time on each piece in this issue, and learn or feel something you have yet to experience in your life. From there, the world is yours!

We hope you and yours enjoy the days ahead.

All best,

Erin and Linsey
