Awakening, my first chapbook, contains a collection of poems written over a span of almost three decades. In collaboration with the local designer James McDonald of impress, Inc., I published this book last March, during the first weeks of the world-wide Coronavirus pandemic. Like the journey described in Awakening, this process took determination, faith and affirmation that even in the most challenging and tenuous of times, words matter. Perhaps most of all in such moments, the heart yearns to sing.
Awakening is available at Broadside Books in Northampton, MA
