Alexandria Living Magazine – “Between the Rings”

Just a little announcement:

I’m excited to let you know I have another essay appearing in the current issue of Alexandria Living magazine!

It’s always a thrill to work with the kind folks at the magazine and as an Alexandria, Virginia resident it is especially fun to contribute.

Below is the link to my piece in the online version of Alexandria Living. If you like, please comment on the magazine website in the space they provide just below the essay.

We love the feedback!

Thanks again to all those who’ve asked what I’ve been up to lately. Blogging continues to be great fun and has proven to be an exciting pathway to opportunities such as this. Exciting!

  4. Loved this one, Stuart. I think the rings are a good reminder of how insignificant one year can be – and yet how important what we do during that year really is. I am reminded of the celebration of the life of John Lewis this weekend. He had the same rings we all do, but my oh my what a difference he made between his rings.

    Oh I want to piggy back on Sheila Morris’s posting! Also, great story. I really love reading all of them!

  6. Felt like I was on that walk with you! Congratulations again for getting a wider platform for your stories — they’re worth it! 😀

  7. Congratulations Stuart! Loved the piece

  8. What a marvelous storyteller you are! I wrote a comment at the site, but the “submit” didn’t appear to work. I hope it did! I poked it 3 times!

  9. Congratulations, Stuart!

  10. Posted my comment on your article just now. It’s a great read, thought provoking and interesting. A photo of that tree would have been a plus point.

    Love reading your work. One thing though, with your talent, why did’t you draw the tree trunk. We know also how good your drawings are. Hope continued good health to you Stu. Joyce

  12. Bravo on yet another great story.

  13. Wow! Yet another! Congratulations again. Stay well.

  14. Congrats! Wonderful news👏

  15. Really enjoyed this. Walking has been my reprieve and writing inspiration as well during this crazy time in our stories. I left a comment on the magazine link, but I’ll add that my husband and I once bought starts from trees through a historical tree society. It just brought special meaning to add some of the nation’s history to our yard and garden.

  16. Because of the grace of God, life is never as bad as it could be… 🙂
