The Power of One Writer
Back Yards, Ethiopia and Children's Books


ImageBig Ma Nature turns off the faucet fast around here!

Last week, some of the Vermont College MFA faculty had a writing retreat at Canon Beach, and it rained on us almost every day–I got soaked twice.

Today, I’m watering my new garden, fussing over those poor tender greenlings looking limp and helpless in the sun.  I’m trying to figure out what kind of laurel that is in our yard and whether I can use the leaves for mulch and hold the moisture into the soil.  I’m worring over a slug I scooped up with laurel maybe-mulch.  I got it out of there, but does it have cousins left behind?

Life swerves.  Hang on for the wild ride!
