When did yesterday become today...

Sometimes it is easier to let experiences transform from yesterday to today
into futile grasps of the future, slipping quietly, dripping like time measured in slow motion...
Moving toward places and remembered times when there was a comfort,
an inner reaction that empowers the spirit to find harmony with the universe
And the inner emotions of solace and peace.

Sometimes it is best to embrace even as the letting go is simultaneous
when the kindness and generosity of people met for the first time
permeates and then evaporates into painful memories of  abandonment and exile.

Yesterday became today when the avoidable omissions slams consciousness back into darkened depths of despair and toxic understanding.

And at some point in time when relevancy is a notion of creativity and hope is the coming of the gods, acceptance is forged with strength; the eternal path becomes clearer, and more purposeful.

Then it is easier.

With a saddened heart, we acknowledge and share the fact that Keith Leonard passed away.

His spirit, gracious welcoming of many to aaduna...his wit and charm, and ability to make submitters feel that they were a part of some special endeavor that captured the creativity of what it meant to be human...will be forever missed.

We now move forward with heavy hearts; will stay true to the Mission that Keith helped create, and without apologies, recognize that our steps may be slower...more measured...the summer/fall 2015 issue will come...promoting the artists of the next issue will come.  

Now, we need to reflect and remember the gracious spirit of our departed friend, colleague, and brother.  
Keith Leonard, aaduna submissions manager



  1. So sorry for the loss. Thought at some point I would have the opportunity to meet the man who treated art with care and attention. The man who humorously displayed patience and smiled at me through missives. Thought I would meet the man, but grateful I met the essence of kindness. Mr. Keith Leonard, thank you. R.I.P.
