From The Mom Egg, an annual collection of poetry, fiction, prose, and art by or about mothers & motherhood, an inaugural theme issue, on the subject of "Lessons". A young girl learns her mother's new husband may have some redeeming qualities after all. A grown man returns to the neighborhood of his childhood to come to grips with his mother's memory. Ex-husbands, aunties, teachers, parents, our own children and life experiences all can teach lessons to live by...or those best ignored. By turns trenchant, lyrical, savage, and funny, The Mom Egg's "Lessons" are unforgettable.
