GUD Magazine Issue 3

GUD Magazine Issue 3 published one of my poems, “Sa Bawat Digma” / “In Every War.”  Here is a link to Johann Carlisle’s review at Future Fire that mentions the poem.  The Fix reviewer Rochita Loenen-Ruiz also takes note of it.

It is a fantastic magazine – and I am not saying that because they accepted this particular poem and one other in a forthcoming issue.  GUD Magazine is a unique experiment in its print and digital formats.  You won’t regret getting hold of an issue.

    I was, to say the least, surprised to see your ‘avatar’
    on WordPress as it resembles a series of photos I took last year. Could you tell me please where you photographed the pic?
    Mine was taken in Portugal on the site of an old mineral mine.
    Please reply. I find it fascinating.

      Hi Caroline. Thank you for stopping by on this little realm.

      The photo is a detail of a root of a bush. I was in a nature reserve on a hike with my kids when I took the photo. It didn’t look like anything interesting then, and my old digital camera has never proven to be any good with details. South Africa has some of the most stunning nature reserves. This particular one – Tygerberg Nature Reserve – is very small and practically right next to the city. I shall post the whole photo for you here to see.
