Souvenir (Bike N Bread)

Back in 2012, as I was typing poems at a festival on the Granby (MA) Town Common I met Dorie Goldman selling her bread and other baked goods.   This was the first and only time our paths crossed.  I typed her a poem.  She gave me snacks. It was as short, sweet encounter.

Sadly and tragically, Dorie died in a hiking accident on January 26, 2015.  I don’t claim to know her.  However, I had the pleasure of meeting her. She made this world a better place.

Here is the poem I wrote for her that day on the common…

NOTE: On New Years Day, I love to listen to the Vienna Philharmonic (live on NPR) while creating art. This starts my year off with a positive and creative vibe. For 2015, I made a stamp from a Pink Pearl erasure using a utility knife blade.  I used it later that day on a letterbox excursion.
