Poetry & Other Writing


I spent a week in the woods at Puget Sound Guitar Workshop, taking a songwriting class from the illimitable Kathy Kallick. After a few writing prompts, I wrote a country song that’s about a woman who keeps walking away from the issues and events in her life: “It’s all because of boot heels on the road…”

The chorus goes—

Starlight, star bright
Her skies are made for stormy weather
Starlight, star bright,
Her skies are made for rain

I’ll post a recording if my sweetie’s ever happy with the music he’s written for it!
