Behind The Fog Is Reality

Cutting through the fog

September Sun

Reality pierces the heart like

the September sun

burns through

the morning fog.

A painful shaft but for

an instant, that turns into

a flood of warmth,

penetrating the dampness,

coloring the grey, golden,

And revealing not only the

face of a new day, but also

the truth behind the clouds.

P. Avery — 9/7/94

About Pam Avery Printed

I graduated from the University of Georgia in 1972 with a major in journalism (public relations) and a minor in business (marketing). My experience for the last 40 years includes working in the corporate world (banking), the newspaper industry (advertising design and sales), owning and selling a restaurant, restoring and utilizing several old buildings on the property, teaching private dance and drama lessons for 20 years, free-lance writing for a national textile firm, publishing two children’s books, and ghost writing a book. My last tour of duty before beginning the current chapter was working as a reporter, photographer, and columnist for five weekly community newspapers. And now I writing at Columbus State University in Columbus Ga. I consider myself very fortunate--I get to be around intelligent, energetic and enthusiastic young people. What a joy. I believe the written word is one of the most powerful tools known to humankind. And now we have the ability to reach millions with a simple click of the mouse. Wow.
