Coming Up

The needle in the hyphen of our semi-retirement continues to move away from the semi part. It may swing back we'll see.

We've had to cancel our Halloween Chautauqua, and I'm not sure about the Thanksgiving one. A lot of pre-registrations would make a differencet.

There is an upcoming gig, I'm continuing to write, and I hope to have a solo "folktales learned live in Vermont" (no real title yet) presentation ready by spring. --TimJ

Leanne's Poetry Book

"I found some poems in a cardboard box, and thought I'd give them air."

Leanne was a recovering poet when I met her. Here's a short one.

Fat Girl

When I was a Fat Girl
in a sausage skin,
tied with ribbons at one end
and shoe strings at the other,
my mother pulled me through stores behind her
like something she’d return
if she could find the manager.
