Recently I learned that the grief talk I give on how to recover your own life after a major life loss–The Day I learned to Fly, has been accepted by a grief anthology. Our loss (heaven; gin) was our son, Joseph Gabriel Leotta
Today I got the news that Tigershark, a British publication is live with my poem, Shenandoah, Valley of the Stars that I wrote to honor Joey, our son, who died in 2002. He loved those mountains and his time at Virginia Tech in the heart of the Shenandoah.
The poem is an adaptation of the Native American myth of the formation of the valley.
Tigershark #5 is now available to download from the site.
