True Story: in two parts ~ by Sean Siple

This is a true story of anxiety and foreboding, in two parts. It happens all at once, so it is not quite a flow from beginning to middle to end, or flashback style or even linear much at all. Both pieces appears in Skyline alone and hopefully will stand that way too. Alone, separate and...

Remembering I have what I need – by Sean Siple

Using a standard Myers-Briggs evaluation tool, I was typed as a ENFP twenty years ago and just recently I have been typed a distinct ENFJ. The P says I am a perceiver and the J says I am a judge. According to Jungian Typology, these designations indicate a preferred approach to life. The J sees...

Moonlight Quilt ~ by Amanda Cantrell Roche

This is where we walked.   Where our feet left imprints of the stages of our lives. Where the earth resonates with who we were, and speaks it back to me in vivid memory.   Here we walked, under the Sycamore, her bone-white branches’ open embrace from above, roots surfing the ground under bare feet....

Action Steps for Justice in Turkey

Action Steps for Justice in Turkey

by Amanda Cantrell Roche Turkey has held a special place in my heart since I travelled there as a guest on a Culture and Dialogue Turkey Trip in May 2015. Since then, freedom of speech and press have heavily deteriorated. The human rights violations under President Erdogan are staggering, and behind each number is someone’s...
