Poetry Reading, Black Cat Books

On Sunday, January 14th, I had the pleasure of participating in a poetry reading at the Black Cat Bookstore in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico.  Almost twenty local poets treated us to some of their recent work which encompassed life in New Mexico, spirituality, illness, and coping with loss of a loved one.  The poems were powerful in their sincerity, and it was an honor to be in the company of such wonderful poets!

Greetings from VSC!

I am writing from beautiful Johnson, Vermont at the Vermont Studio Center (VSC) residency for artists and writers.  I will be present at this residency until just before Christmas. 

I am currently a resident on the basis of my poetry, so I am spending each day heavily engaged in the Maverick Studios.

I recently read a book which described the process of giving photos as a gift and in the spirit of gratitude, rather than the commonly spoken phrase "taking photos."  The following are images of the Vermont landscape and the VSC campus for your enjoyment.

I wish each of you a wonderful holiday season!
