My son is home from college for the summer. I’ve lived in my renovated 1820’s farmhouse for a year and a half now…alone. Just me. Just my mess. Quietness. Solitude. So, we’re here, sharing my tree. The dogs. The contents of the fridge. The upstairs is his new lair. Country rock blasts out of the loft. He and I share wifi. Side by side social networks. I’ve waited for this. Delighted, I’m learning to share.

Published by Mo+th, 12 Los Angeles Poets, Big City Mantra, Literary Mama, and others, her poetry and art photography are featured in the anthology Seeing Things (Woodland Arts Editions, 2020). A collection of her poetry, Caught Before Flight, published by Woodland Arts Editions, debuts fall 2020. A wild child at heart, in 2011 she moved to central NY to renovate an 1920’s farmhouse that she bought, sight unseen. From a post on Facebook. Her art photography grew from there, she’s had solo and group shows, and is collected on both coasts. She describes her photography as Bucolia, in that she recreates central NY with her signature style—as a hyper saturated dreamland. View more posts
