Happy 4th of July! This is the duck who lives on Spring Street and I pass him every day on my walk downtown. For this I am thankful. I have the freedom to walk downtown in the quiet, fresh air of Eureka Springs. This is the last day of my trip to the Writers' Colony. It has been a wonderful, productive time. The writers who come hear are supported by the entire staff, fellow writers and the artistic appreciation of the community. For this I am most grateful. I have the freedom to write poems and share them with others. Freedom and happiness: what the 4th of July is all about.
