Good Times in Seven Days

Loneliness, my friends, is a scary thing. But here’s what I know now: it can be a good thing, too, being alone in the woods in a two-room cabin with snow outside and black squirrels like ink blots on white, and you’re so far away from the noise of the city where planes can crash into towers and mothers can die—will die—in your arms, but not yet, not yet. ~ From “Return Trip”

And These Are the Good Times, Patricia Ann McNair

In just seven days, I will be celebrating the launch of my second book, And These Are the Good Timeswith friends and family and with the wonderful folks from Side Street Press, my publisher. In honor and anticipation of this life event, I am sharing a little teaser: a reflection on “loneliness,” the seventh thing I riff on as mentioned in the subtitle of the collection.

Thanks for reading! – PMc
