Life at the Far End
With a writing conference at Ghost Ranch in New Mexico and a promise to a friend, Annette took up the practice of writing a poem every morning. In composing her breakfast-words, she didn't spend over long on any day's topic focusing, instead, on capturing the importance of tiny moments using, not paragraphs but short sentences and sometimes single words. The challenge of it soon became an addiction, her day not properly started until she'd written down a few lines.
Life at the Far End, is a selection of these morning snapshots describing the movements of nature in her remote mountain valley, of the relationships that make up life there, and of her thoughts and experiences through the changing of the seasons.
