You guys~!!

I had great fun doing the podcast, much to my surprise as pretty much of a non-talker.

Hey Mary!

I love the podcast. You come across brilliantly. You owned it, as I believe people are saying. So wise and funny yet serious and refusing to settle for the easy answer. I love what you said about the subconscious and being quiet. It's so right. And I walk up and down stairs for exercise too! (I don't like gyms or playing sport and when I run outdoors I resent how the pain is spoiling what could otherwise be a pleasant walk)

Edit: I don't want to undersell the content of the interview. Obviously there's more to it than walking up and down stairs...

What a lovely taste of a Mary Meriam bouquet about to bloom!
Maryann Corbett’s review is inciting and all I need to reserve some time to stand in line, short or long, to get a hold of this when it arrives.
Great video.
Looking forward to listening to the podcast.
Bravo!

Thanks so much, Mark, Rick, Jim, and Cathy!!

This heatwave makes stair-climbing quite difficult - but any excuse, eh?

Thanks, Dink!! Did you see the vulture that visited Emily, that I captured on video and used in the book trailer? It seems the vulture was testing the area for nesting. Now I see a vulture couple in a tree nearby.

I just watched this video about Donald Hall. He says, "Poetry offers works of art that are beautiful, like paintings. But there are also works of art that embody emotion, and that are a kind of school for feeling. They teach how to feel, and they do this by the means of their beauty of language." Yes!!!

Letting the awe sink in,
