My post/essay "Fireworks" is up at the Superstition Review Blog

Many thanks to the editors and students at Superstition Review, the literary journal out of Arizona State University. Today they published my guest post/essay, “Fireworks” on the journal’s online blog.

I’ve written for Superstition Review’s blog before; last time I wrote just 10 days after the bombings at the Boston Marathon. Guest contributors to the blog take different approaches to their posts; some offer writing tips or share writing experiences and others write short creative pieces (it’s a wonderful blog to bookmark, by the way). My first post on the blog, titled “What does this have to do with writing?” described the experience of being under lockdown as the authorities searched for the surviving bomber, and then used that experience to consider what makes a topic something one eventually writes about.

This time I went in a different direction and wrote what amounts to a short personal essay. Does this one have anything to do with writing? Here’s the link if you want to find out:
