wherever home begins


I have lived in relatively few places in my life, but traveling to all parts of the country to work with kids or with teachers has given me the gift of a glimpse of life in different places. But, long before I started traveling, I noticed that many poets are connected to a place, like New England or the South. And many poems are set in a place, be it a city or a farm, apartment or treehouse. Eventually, my reading and traveling that gave me the idea to explore poems of place.
