Hi! It’s been awhile. I’m reading a new essay live this afternoon on Facebook — at 3 pm on the topic of “Borders.” More on that below!

I hope this finds you and your loved ones safe and well, although I know there is so much suffering everywhere. I have been sticking close to home for the past 6 months, writing, gardening, and venturing out for the basics. Lately, though, with the improved COVID situation in Maine and New Hampshire, I have treated myself to cappuccinos to go from my favorite coffee shop and we have take-out about once a week. Trying to get off the home front and into the outdoors more, without getting into a crowd.

I’ve spent a lot of time online, and have been so grateful for those connections. I am especially grateful to re-connect with some other Maine writers through this reading series out of Lewiston: Local Writers Read. I’ll be reading today at 3 pm. Please check out this announcement from their Facebook events page:
