Sylvia Mullen-Tohill is a fiction writer who lives in Cave Junction, Oregon. She says her story in this issue is “one of many I’d never have written if I’d acted like an adult and stayed in Kansas.” Walking to Cotapaxi, a collection of her stories set in southwest Colorado, is slated for publication in the summer.
It’s all in the way she comes out of her shop and says, “Come in here, my dear,” as soon as she sees you on the sidewalk in your nightgown, your dog beside you. It’s the way she says, “There, there,” though she has no idea what’s wrong. The way she clutches at her own breast when you try to tell her.
