The Anthropocene Hymnal

The Anthropocene Hymnal: Songs of a self-defining era by [Ingrid Wilson]

I’m pleased to be part of Ingrid Wilson’s project, The Anthropocene Hymnal: Songs of a self-defining era, “A poetic response to the joint crises of climate change and biodiversity loss. Featuring the work of internationally-renowned and bestselling poets including Gabriela Marie Milton, Ivor Steven and Sherry Marr. Voices from five continents join in song to protest the damage we are doing to our only home, planet earth: these ‘songs of a self-defining era’ are the poems which comprise The Anthropocene Hymnal”.

Some of my poems are included, and that’s my collage on the cover.

Available on Amazon in both print and kindle versions, and read Ingrid’s post for information on obtaining a PDF copy. All profits will be donated to the WWF.

Stories from My Life

Last year my daughter gave me a subscription to This company sends prompts for a year; you write your stories and save them. I enjoy writing and this gave me a reason.

It’s a nice book and writing the stories was fun.

Mom’s page.

Dad’s page.

The story about my Martin guitar and a photo of my friend Deborah and me. We had a duo and played at children’s parties.

A clipping from the Paterson Morning Call. My father had my sister and me save a box of snow. In July we took it out and Dad creates one of his famous PR moments. Funny!

One of the pivotal moments of my life: JFK’s assassination. I was a sophomore in high school sitting in art class when the announcement came.

Although I don’t think my daughter has even glanced at the book, I’m glad I did it. A good deal for $39, check it out at

Alphabet book

I’m making an alphabet book for my cousin’s baby due pretty soon. My cousin is a big Star Wars fan so that’s the theme. 

It’s pretty easy but I think he will like it. 

  Couple of other pages done. 

Some of the Star Wars stuff. I got the Star Wars alphabet from Etsy and made a color copy to cut up. I’ll give Evan and Ashley the original. It’s very cute. 

A fun project!
