Heart-on-Sleeve Journal - June 1997

A good bunch this month, 50 new works. Some very personal letters, some abstract prose pieces, and the usual versed feeling.

I'm thinking about adding new sections to the Journal-- maybe a semi-regular editorial by me, (Kirk Rambles Regarding Romance) as well as a piece that I find by an independent author every month. Let me know if you have an opinion on doing that.
