Katherine nicely captured the human spirit of perseverance and resilience in the face of challenge. We don’t all conquer our demons, let alone befriend them, but it’s encouraging to maintain that hope that some day we can get past whatever barrier is currently in front of us.

The Summer of Sweet Mary

I narrowed this month’s options down to the stories from Jim Doss and Bob Thurber and left them up on my computer screen for a full two days while I debated the merits of each. Sorry for the delay that caused in making this announcement! :) Ultimately, I chose Bob’s story for its accessibility, and the trademark Thurber ability to express something inexpressible.
