WAYNE GAGNON

Artist and Poet

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…

    Aren’t encounters like that in our lives just the best ? So glad that you had that and what a nice tribute to her.
