Poet. Writer. Earthling.

June 2024


Summer began in earnest in May this year with a warm and early Memorial Day weekend. I kicked it off with a day at Wingaersheek Beach in Gloucester with my husband, daughter, and ocean-loving grandkids. Looking forward, June and July promise reunions with old friends, a wedding, a baby shower, and a couple of road trips.


Happily, last month was also infused with poetry. I attended readings by Heather Tresseler, Luke Adams, Fanny Howe, Suzanne Mercury, Timothy Gager, and Martha Collins at storied venues such as the Blacksmith House, the Old Manse, and the Gloucester Writers Center. 


As for my own writing, a couple of new poems inspired by Edvard Munch’s artwork were published recently.  “The Storm” is up at Slant, and “Woman by the Sea in Åsgårdstrand” is up at Stoneboat. If you are interested in seeing the artwork, I posted copies on my Facebook page on May 16 (The Storm) and May 23 (Woman by the Sea). Enjoy!

Please email me if you want to receive my periodic communication about new work, events, music and the like. And if you want to purchase "Winter," you can do that either here, or on Amazon.
