Poetry, art, photography, childhood, parenting, creativity
Ghost Notes, a collection of poems, explores memory, art, art making, photography and issues of family, vocation and discovery of self. Art as a vehicle for questioning, and discovery threads through these poems, informing and complicating the speaker’s journey toward understanding the intersections of art, art making, and poetry. The mediums of art and photography are employed as lenses or mirrors through which the speaker navigates and, ultimately, attempts to understand the collisions of memory, imagination and reality in moments from childhood, domestic relationships, work, and in the creation of and interaction with various forms of art.
