About “Harvest,” the author writes, “In writing ‘Harvest’ in the days preceding the first of two cataract surgeries, I tried to capture how I felt about work being done on my eyes. An avid reader, I am deeply grateful to the excellent surgeon who restored my vision.” “Harvest” © 2018 by Beverly Boyd. Contact author:
