Art, Books, Poetry

Welcoming Hope: Poems for those in need is a book that we published with Time of Singing poetry journal. I reread the book recently, and the poems are strong and timeless.

Lora Homan Zill and I served as the Editors. Charles A. Waugaman was the Art Editor and Illustrator.

The book includes poems by many poets. With the universal themes of faith and hope, the book continues to be a beautiful work of art.

The book can be ordered from The Blue Collar Artist Time of Singing. All proceeds benefit Time of Singing. You can also learn more about Time of Singing “quarterly Christian poetry journal from Wind & Water Press.”

Creative note: I completed a draft for a new book of poetry, and now am selecting photos by Karl for the cover art and book. His photo of swans and Lake Michigan is a favorite.

Easter Season

As with Christmas, I think of Easter as a season. One Story. And perhaps this takes some pressure off “the holidays.” Life changes – we remember and we look forward. One day at a time. I enjoy seeing all the ways artists create. And we are all creative artists. Could be something as simple as a plant by the window, or how books are arranged on a desk. Always beauty, always hope.
