I’m a writer, as well as a mother.  Writing is the way I figure things out.  I don’t function very well if I don’t do it.  I kept another blog for three years called Dear Audrey.  While that blog chronicled my grief process after the sudden loss of my husband, this blog is, as I say in the subtitle, “A close reading of the everyday.”  Just as T.S. Eliot suggested poets are “constantly amalgamating disparate experiences,” I believe the job of the writer is to amalgamate and reflect upon seemingly disparate experiences in life.  There is synchronicity there for those who search.  Thank you for reading.

  1. My Dear. The song is so beautiful. There are several people to come to my mind as I hear you sing it, and I’m weeping. Can you email me? I’m working on a new CD and would like to ask your permission to record it. Thank you for your writing.


    1. Hi Illana- Thanks for your comment. You’re welcome to direct those people to the link to hear it. The song is copyrighted so that’s probably the best way to share it. Best of luck with your CD!
