We are honored to present an array of women’s voices expressing the depths and nuances of relationships with their attendant joys, their sense of yearning, sorrow, loss, and sensuality. These voices explore the subtleties of communication and longing between parent and child, lovers, and friends, as well as connections to different cultures. Voices in this issue also explore aging and the body, as women exult in continued strength and enjoy challenges like travel, nature, and surfing! Some poems are whimsical and witty. We enjoyed laughing and being sincerely moved. Thank you to all the poets for gracing us with your creations.
