Beverwyck Independent Living community has a distinct advantage of being favored with many talented and creative residents. When the call came for submissions for a literary journal - the first - to be published in 2023, the response was immediate and impressive. Forty-seven residents responded, with works of art that included prose, poetry, photography, painting, sculpture, woodcarving, weaving, needlework, cross stitching, metal smithing and papercutting. While we regret we could not publish all the submissions this book is filled with examples of the creative power of our residential community. To our readers, we say “Enjoy” and share with your family and friends.
