Poet Alan Catlin provides blurb for Sheila-Na-Gig Editions Volume 1!

Sheila-Na-Gig contributor & Misfit Magazine editor Alan Catlin recently contributed a blurb for Marc Swan’s today can take your breath away. Alan writes:

Marc Swan’s latest collection celebrates gifts of life in its many forms: conversation over dinner with friends, daily walks on a beach, Being in all its natural glory.  In this he is like Ray Carver, a poet he references in a discussion with an older woman that ends in silence and confusion. Loved ones grow old, get Alzheimer’s, and are visited in nursing homes. The process of life slowly integrates, much is lost along the way but the  celebration of life continues: today can take your breath away.
