Out of print treasures such as this lovely - Blueberries Lavender by Nancy Dingman Watson and illustrated by a favorite artist, Erik Blegvad. Some charming poetry and as gorgeous line art.

Someone thoughtful left a perfect walking stick propped up against a tree. Grateful.
If I press my hands against this, will I find myself back in time? In Scotland? Hmmm.
Better to Be Here Now
And avoid the turkeys (good life rule in general).

So pleased to have my poem, Perspective, on the No Extra Words podcast. I'm reading it - I found an app to record it and did so feeling madly techie the entire time.
Another good thing this lovely month of celebrated poetry is having four lines from my poem, Backstory, riding around on buses as part of an inspired poetry event by Norwalk, Connecticut 's very own poet laureate, Laurel Peterson.
If you are on a bus in Norwalk, enjoy the poetry snippets by assorted poets, and here's the photo to guide you to listen to the podcast.

My poem, Come What May, is now up at the wonderful Woman Around Town.
They have published three other poems of mine previously and I'm always so pleased to be represented there.

Visiting the cairn at Purchase college while up there. I am a fan of Andy Goldworthy's work and it's a pleasure to be able to say hello to this piece when I'm in the area.
And a magnificent neighboring sculpture of sorts, wrought from seed and God of all mysteries...
