|Lorri Neilsen Glenn|
Better, her later description:
Here, on the page, memory can ligate, light can be threaded and woven through darkness. What we remember can serve as both binding and bridge long after our bodies, these fragile tumbling bonehouses, have gone.Or, as poet Shawna Lemay writes:
A journey of the body, the soul, and the intellect. This is a glorious book, the book I was waiting for.I've known Lorri, the former Halifax Poet Laureate (2005-2009), for several years through Writers and Artists Colonies at St. Peter's Abbey (now the Saskatchewan Writers' Guild Retreats Program) and loved her Thursday night readings, her calm voice, her haunting words.
This book is beautiful, Lorri. Congrats — and thanks!
