Dear Friends,

I originally sent this issue on Earth Day, 2013;  it seemed timely to share it again with you on this Mother's Day, 2020.

I'm also proud to share some of my story as an artist in the May/June issue of South X Southeast photomagazine  - a tribute to mothers in all their splendid diversity.  My contribution - a tribute to Mother Earth and The Divine Feminine.

In her introductory letter, editor Nancy McCrary speaks of being humbled "by the beauty, power, majesty, and respect shown by any or all of the images and essays in this issue. There are incredible messages and lessons here if we just look and listen…  Mother's Day is upon us, and the articles in the Mothers series are gems. No matter if the word Mother conjures up an image of a person, an animal, Mother Earth, or just a feeling of security and comfort, we all need some mothering right now."

Let the healing truly commence.

Mother's Day - May 10, 2020



And how will she welcome us,
her ignorant prodigals?
Is forgiveness possible?

Respect, child. Respect.









Once handed out on street corners, it seemed right to update the broadside* form for our electronic age's street corner - the web. Welcome to A VISION AND A VERSE, an e-Broadside. Four to six times a year, I'll showcase a featured image and poem of mine, matching them on a seasonal or timely theme.

A seasonal celebration and a sharing of my creative process, I hope you'll want to subscribe to future issues. Click here for a free subscription

*A broadside is a large sheet of paper printed on one side only. Historically, broadsides were posters, announcing events or proclamations, or simply advertisements. Today, broadside printing is done by many smaller printers and publishers as a fine art variant, with poems often being available as broadsides, intended to be framed and hung on the wall.
