I have a new essay out, published in the latest issue of a literary magazine called Hotel Amerika, which is run by Columbia College in Chicago. The essay is called “A Surefire Recipe for Unassailable Faith, Involving Four Judgments and a Vegetable Analogy.” In it, I give my own homecooked recipe for getting faith and intellectual integrity to cohere. This one is pretty short and easy reading (relative to the last essay I had published, if you were one of the two people who tried to read through that one). Just four pages of literary-philosophic-culinary musings.
Incidentally, this shows what a long, long time it takes to get something published. When I wrote this a couple of years ago, I was still a housewife who spent a lot of time in the kitchen. Now I’m a divorced working single mom who, alas, rarely sees the kitchen.

What a terrific essay. Congrats on both writing and publishing it. Very, very cool.

I hope my writing helped some people, but at least I’m certain it was good for one thing; I figured out my own self in the process.
Nice writing you do. Don’t give up. You are correct; the road to publication is a long journey but it is is a fun one.

Congratulations on getting this published, Therese!
