About Me

My photo
Forest, Virginia, United States
A long time ago, my sophomore English teacher, Father William Campbell, saw something in my writing and predicted that I would someday become a newspaper columnist. He suggested the perfect title for my column--"Leaves of the Palm." Now that I have a little extra time on my hands I've decided to put Father Campbell's prediction to the test. I'm going to start using this blog site not just to reprint opinion pieces I've published elsewhere but to try to get more of my ideas and opinions out there. Feedback is welcome. To find out more about me, please check out my Web site: www.EdwardFPalm.com (Click on any of the photos below for an enlarged view.)

My New Teaching Assistant

I thought I would share a couple images of me and my new teaching assistant, "Phineas,"  hard at work.  Clicking on the photos will enlarge them.  --EFP

My Photo of "Big Bad John"

The Sun, a literary magazine out of Chapel Hill, has accepted the photo I've inserted below.  It's a remnant of my eight years in West Virginia.   The little fawn's mother had been hit and killed by a car, and some friends found the fawn trying to nurse on its dead mother.  They took care of the little guy for a week, before turning him over to the Department of Wildlife Services.   The man in the photo is John Diehl, the brother of the Vice President of Administration at Glenville State College.  --EFP
