Old Woman

Sitting alone, old,
a woman in her living room,
the drained, blue-gray wash of her eyes
staring down deep into a memory,
the curtains closed…
filtering in soft, amber warmth
in a glowing patch
over part of the carpet and her forearm,
transforming several hairs over her cracked skin
into fine, fiery filaments,
a warmth she resisted
from somewhere deep within
her enclosed, shrinking world—
insisting… mutely insisting to herself
that all was dark and cold.

spacer This web site is old and creaky. The email function functions poorly when it functions at all. Worse, it all looks old. So we are starting work on building a new site, and hope to have it functioning by fall.

Our vision will not change, nor will our attempt in this little spot of the Internet to invite you to join us in thinking about the things that matter most. Thanks for visiting.
