The Old School House
My work, my work ...
I'm always in the process of slowly crafting
a life that seems to evolve just quickly enough to (not quite)
keep up with my heartvisions as well as my headworkings
The place my work comes from is Home.
The Old School House. It's an 130 year old limestone pedagogical
palace, the village's 1st school and now our home. I've created
a studio space that enables me to make music (a place of practice,
rehearsal and some fairly low tech recording), and to write AND
to look out the window. Our two children move through this space
and stop to make their own music and leave their own creative
marks (to strum a guitar that hangs on a stand or draw a picture
or rearrange a shelf...)
I have one book in the world, it's titled Writing
Research/Researching Writing: Through a Poet's I (Peter
Lang). My latest recording, Curving for the Coast,
featuring an Australian song-cycle, was released in January
teach songwriting and poetry workshops to elementary-aged
students for Queen’s
University’s Enrichment Studies Program.
is good. I am blessed.
