My grandmother Edna B. Kearns (far left) sets out to campaign for the right of women to vote in 1913 from New York City. Suffrage activist Serena Kearns, my aunt, is center stage. I agree with Angelica Huston’s point—that ranting brings out the character of people—like me. I’m determined and persistent. Years later after I returned to New Mexico from interviewing my father in Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, I read Angelica Huston’s morning column about “ranting” recently.  It’s relevant.


The above selection comes to me from Angelica’s Substack column. I have been attending the Saturday morning “Imaginative Storm” free sessions for years. You can too. Give me a shout, or type “Imaginative Storm” into your search engine. We meet on zoom weekly. Join us. My storytelling friend, Regina Ress, steered me in this direction. Every week James Nave and Angelica Huston do the same routines while I have watched myself and others grow as writers. When Angelica Houston started writing for Substack, I signed up to pay to read on a regular basis. Has my writing improved? You bet.
