Unmarked Crossings: a poet and her journeys

Home

March 30, 2010

Home. After a six-hour drive that would have taken under four hours had I-40 West not been closed due to a rockslide near the North Carolina/Tennessee border, I pulled into my driveway. My friend James’s car was parked there, so I knew I would be greeted by my three dogs that  Read More

Catching Up at Connemara

March 27, 2010

I’m catching up after several days of not posting here. So many things I wanted to write about have already flown from my mind. I’m sure that some random thought about my residency will pop into my head and I will wish I had included it here and now.  Read More

In and Out and About at Connemara

March 21, 2010

I’ve been a bit under the weather for the past few days. Oddly enough, when it is bright and sunny here, I prefer to wait to go outside until the volunteers and staff have left and locked up the front gates and there are only a few hardly hikers or walkers about.  Read More

Another night tossing and turning. It seems that every other night is one where I either sleep like a log or can’t sleep at all. I believe, rather like New Year’s I was awake at 2 a.m. to welcome in Daylight Savings Time 2010. At 4 a.m., I turned on the light  Read More

The sun was shining when I got up this morning! Oh joy! It has been raining or drizzling or foggy for three days.

After posting late yesterday afternoon, I decided to take a walk in the misty drizzle that had hung around all day. I first went to the goat yard, only to find it locked. I had forgotten that for all practical purposes, Connemara shuts down around 5:00 p.m. Walkers (human and canine) are encouraged  Read More
