We celebrate this issue influenced by memories of Keith Leonard who passed away unexpectedly in late September of this year. And yet, Keith would say "get over yourself and do what you are suppose to do...celebrate and make festive noise for the poets, writers and artists who gave their work to aaduna to publish and promote..."
We first published in 2011. In our fifth year, we combined our summer and fall issues and created a wonderful mix of words, images and contributors. And we celebrate and fete their work and their creativity. This current issue belongs to the contributors whose patience, support and graciousness made the difficult road to publication easier because we knew they had our backs...without question. And that is what trust is about and where aaduna rests its hat.
aaduna was born to extol the virtues of diversity, multiculturalism, pluralism and respect for differences...we will stay our course and continue to invite opinions where the public should decide whether or not there is validity in words, images or any other expression of creativity.
Stay creative ~
