Excited to just have been invited to contribute to "Miso for Life--A Melting Pot of Thoughts," the second anthology in the series by Thirteen Minutes Books edited by Mai Xuan Bui. (Thanks to the irrepressible Kate Agathon, who will also be featured in the collection.) Now to write something optimistic and hopeful without my usual curmudgeonly bah-humbug, lol. I think I have just the story.
Pho for Life: A Melting Pot of Thoughts is a collection of short stories and poems that takes readers on a journey of the many expressions of love, through the lens of Asian and other cultures. Immigrants will grapple with their new identity. Children will reminisce about mom’s homemade cooking. Parents will lose sleep over new generational gaps. Lovers will dance through the cultural lines. Friends will enjoy each other’s company over a tasty meal while discussing the heartaches, the challenges, and joys of life.
No matter where we are in our journey through life, Pho for Life will remind the readers that – in the end – love still conquers all. Its inspiring words will stir passion in their hearts and make their spirits soar.A Melting Pot of Thoughts | 13 Minutes Books
