  • About Me

    My writing is all about the connection between people and the places they inhabit.

    Why do you write?

    Being out in the world or in the garden either makes me want to write or take photographs. The two realms sometimes collide.

    Briggs -- Strange thing, your wall looks just like my macintosh screen. Thanks for inviting me here! I see some familiar names. And I love reading writers' favorite writers. Seeing yours I realize there are a few favorites I forgot to mention myself.

    Hi Briggs. I'll write on your wall. I love the lists. Wish that I had gotten to meet you when you were in New York.
