The Butterfly Tree and Two New Poems by Linda Eve Diamond

I wrote earlier about the mysterious book sculptor of Edinburgh, Scotland, who has been anonymously gifting extraordinary book sculptures "in support of libraries, books, words and ideas" since 2011. Last spring, she announced that she would be creating her final sculpture and invited submissions of paper butterflies to be included.

Find links, video and two new poems "in support of libraries, books, words and ideas"...

Earlier this month, I shared some poems from an ekphrastic poetry project and presentation.

As today is Jack London's birthday, it seems like a perfect time to share.

Light Writing: A California Mini Photo Tour by Linda Eve Diamond

Jeff and I spent time sightseeing in California this month. I was so busy taking pictures that I haven't done much writing. Then again, as photographs write with light, maybe it's more accurate to say I've been doing some light writing. (Light poems?)  ;)  I'd like to share them here and invite you to join us on a mini photo tour of some of our favorite spots...
