I am delightful company!
Once upon a time this writer was a reporter/photographer and columnist for a large weekly newspaper in New York City, worked at the Center for Publishing at N.Y.U., worked at Kirkus for one whirlwind semester and eventually was an editor at Scholastic. After two very eventful years on cable television in New York City, this writer was voted off the island. Today this writer is a student and soon-to-be published author (all fingers and toes are crossed) living in reduced circumstances. She is ever hopeful and even though her stomach may rumble from time to time, she is usually somewhat reasonably well fed. Most importantly this writer is a recovering or former New Yorker, (recovering seems more apt), who is quite happily transplanted elsewhere. She blooms where she is planted. ************************ You can contact me at diaryofahopefulstarvingstudent@ gmail.com

"It's not a good sign," Joy said.

"What?" Hope said. 

Hope looks down as Isaiah starts to stir.  She kisses his forehead and shifts the baby so he can hear her heartbeat.

Isaiah responds by smiling in his sleep and turns toward Hope.

"When I asked her to tell me about herself, she told me almost nothing.  Then she proceeded to tell me all about you and Winston and what happened in Chicago," Joy said, turning expectantly toward Hope.

"What did she tell you?"

"She told me that he proposed three times.  Did he?" Joy asked as she smiles.

"Just a little bit," Hope said.
