Human observation of animal behavior, including its own. Love, shame, judgment, family.
Chekhov, because he can make what should be depressing uplifting.
Sappho, so I could write down her lost poems.
To "harness the power of the unfinished" (Louise Glück)
I'm a full-time mother and writer, part-time teacher (for OLLI at UVM) and editor (of Mud Season Review). I love thinking about the paths stories and poems can take, and appreciate the chance to talk about them with other writers.
