A HYMN FOR WISH
Mary Kennedy Eastham
MARY KENNEDY EASTHAM calls herself a Word Actress letting her characters perform different roles on paper which is of course weaving her own needs, her own fantasies, her love, her loss and her joy into the poems and short stories she writes.
She is busy promoting her first book 'The Shadow of a Dog I Can't Forget' and is desperately trying to finish her debut short story collection, 'The Possibilities of Love'. She tells her her husband,who is feeling much neglected, "Don't give up on me!"
MARY tells us that 'A Hymn for Wish' is one of her favorite pieces. "I loved writing it. I love the characters. I raise Golden Retrievers so the dog motif presents itself often in my work. The actual inspiration came from a picture I saw after the Katrina floods of this thin, wet, dirty dog all alone on a porch railing, the waters rising around him. I couldn't let that image go."
