Photographs throughout Issue 25 are from
Leslie LaChance, a poet, essayist, and teacher. 
She also takes photographs every day, using the photographic moment as a means to focus attention and practice mindful observation.  Among her favorite photographic subjects are gardens and honky tonks. Leslie lives in
Nashville, Tennessee and teaches English at Volunteer State Community College. You can follow her photographic exploits on Instagram, where she posts as Fortunajones. Still has
featured her prose and poetry in our pages, so we're especially glad to share her photography
in this issue.
