more good news

this could not come at a more needed time--good news has been like this for me lately: yesterday, i found out that my short story, "talk on elekuro street," a piece i first wrote in 2006, and changed a bit since, has been accepted for publication in stand magazine, a notable literary journal based in the uk. the story was under consideration for nearly six months, and so i had put it to rest, and focused on other works. this acceptance is a bit surreal and another reminder that timing is divine.

A wonderful reminder that everything happens within it's time -- we don't control that -- we can only initiate it. Congratulations!
