The Ghouls' Review Spring 2015 - Page 3

Foreword She turned to the sunlight And shook her yellow head, And whispered to her neighbor: “Winter is dead.” –A.A. Milne, When We Were Very Young For some reason, the winter seemed to last forever this year. It was like slowly trudging through a dark and incredibly cold nightmare. But that yellow flower is right — winter is dead and spring has finally arrived to take its rightful place! You might not be surprised to hear that spring is my favourite season. I’m all about the newness and rebirth: watching living things emerge from the darkness and reach for the light. In this issue, you’ll find some reflections of that theme, sometimes funny, sometimes introspective, sometimes stark, and sometimes so intense you won’t realize you’re holding your breath until you exhale. Whether or not this is your season, I hope you enjoy our Spring 2015 issue! And if you need me, I’ll be in my garden. Happy Spring! Suzanne Purkis Editor-in-Chief
