From the Author
For this edition of Grace I have added a small number of essays that carry forward this single theme while simultaneously reflecting on the act of writing as a means to discovering grace. I began the first edition of Grace with a poem, "What I Have Found," that looked back and set the tone of summary I intended. I close this revised and expanded edition with another poem, "Vow," to indicate an active looking ahead to more and better work.
