  • BLOG-Countdown

    May we greet each other warmly in the coming year.

  • BLOG—2017: Making 2016 look better since January 2

    In my experience, year-in-review pieces tend to be the embodiment of the theme some from Facts of Life: “You take the good, you take the bad, you take them both and there you have” a cache of schmaltz, a cache of schmaltz! 

  • BLOG-Night Divine

    Slow and steady. Be safe.

    In memory, snow fell all winter those first two years. Our backyard became a closet stuffed with bridal gowns, frothy white forms smothering every bush and tree. I loved the stacked inches atop the clean curves of honeysuckle, and the transformed hemlock, a dark Pegasus spreading white wings.

  • BLOG-Shoulder Rub

    Seaworthiness is best tested before lashing ourselves to the mast in the midst of a monster storm.

  • BLOG—It’s time to start listening to WOC, y’all

    Did you know that Browder v. Gayle, the case that legally ended Alabama’s bus segregation laws, had as its plaintiffs four African-American women?

  • BLOG— Raven, a reflection

    Raven didn’t speak much about being sick. Instead, she brought my husband, a new friend, into her home studio. Brought out her pulps, her deckles, her tubs of finished papers — some textured, some translucent, some delicately veined like the inside of a wrist.
