Why this?

The occasional poem of my own and a generous helping of work by others that I find inspiring. Site is named for a beloved book by one of my favorite writers, Italo Calvino, whose fanciful work lights--and delights--my soul.

Narrow your vision

"When dealing with large and emotionally charged subject matter, I find it useful to narrow my vision so I'm not intimidated by the scope of the material. It's much easier to describe the card my parents sent to family and friends my first Christmas than it is to write about my father's violence and temper. The larger subjects are always contained in the smaller ones..." --Barry Lopez
