    Old homesteads often hold many memories…some warm others bring tears.

    Spirits inhabit old houses and places where human passions were expressed, love given, lives began and ended. Then there are the spirit catchers that are able to see, touch and breathe life into those human things that have long laid dormant until gently awaked by the soft hand and consuming eyes of a poet. Beautiful River.

    dang river…wicked flow to this…and little snatches of imagery that weave together nicely into a story….so many stories contained in those walls…
