This Boston m4w missed connections post begins: “I met you in the rain on the last day of 1972, the same day I resolved to kill myself” and you’re instantly absorbed in a very different kind of personals ad. In fact, whether or not the OP (“an old man now”) ever finds the woman who grabbed his hand and chatted with him over pecan pie at a five and dime one rainy New Year’s Eve becomes irrelevant.

Annalemma is the latest magazine to magically appear on my doorstep. Actually “magazine” kind of gives you the wrong impression, it’s a literary publication filled with short stories, photographs, and other artwork. In short, it’s fantastic. The photos below may be a little misleading, Annalemma is filled with a lot more writing than what I’ve shown here. What I was thinking was, I’d show you some of the images first and then dedicate another whole post to one of the short stories for you to read! How does that sound?
