Ghost Blog(ging)

1. Garden Blog The Mariënhof: The posts are based on email correspondence, focused on the estate and garden of Meinoud and Jeannette Dijkema in Midwoud, the Netherlands. I edited their email, and posted that plus material added by me as though written by the Dijkemas, in first person plural.

2. The posts on Blues Licks and iPics are the result of daily reports from and interviews with musician Gary Davis, repeat participant of Centrum's Blues Festival and Workshops.


Special Reports

1. As an architectural tour guide and docent at SPL's Flagship downtown Seattle, I made my home away from home at "Central" from the opening in 2004 till the summer of 2013. I shared news that came my way on the blog OMA Fan in Seattle

2. In 1995, 1997 and 2003 I participated in manuscript workshops at Centrum's Port Townsend Writers' Conference. After working with Janice Eidus, Robin Hemley and Dorothy Alison, I signed up for just a retreat in 2008, joining conference participants at meal times and for lectures and readings; a great break from the solitary writer's life. Waking up only steps from the Strait of Juan de Fuca, beaches and forest, was a real treat.


Writing Challenges

In every work of genius we recognize our own rejected thoughts; they come back to us with a certain alienated majesty.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson from “Self-Reliance”, 1841
