My friend artist Maria Wulf recently shot this video of me reading one of the poems from my upcoming book, “Gone to Ground.” I’m not a huge fan of seeing myself in either photos or videos, so I think I look a bit uncomfortable (hence the vague smile). But I do enjoy reading aloud, and it was good practice for the upcoming Bedlam Farm Open House, and the reading I was invited to do at Battenkill Books.
I've never really liked labels: I am this, I am that... But in the interest of introducing myself to the world, I can say that I am many things: nurse, writer, photographer, poet, painter, gardener, friend, armchair philosopher, counselor, nature lover, real-estate aficionado, movie buff, sometime yogi, and aspiring world-traveler. I think that's a pretty good list... for now. I want to become a bigger part of the vital, creative force I feel deeply at work in the world and connect with other people who want to do the same.
