Wandering Wonderful – A Hike and a Giveaway

Friends
You should definitely comment for a chance for Sarah Whiteley’s new book.
I can’t say enough how much I love and recommend this lovely book.
Wandering Wonderful is a gem!

ebbtide

On Saturday, I ventured out to the dry side of the Cascades for a little hike and exploration. By “little,” I mean 1,250 feet of elevation gain within a single mile. So I guess by “hike,” I really mean climb.

I brought along a copy of Wandering Wonderful, thinking it would be a great photo op for this little giveaway post I’ve been planning – imagine me holding my little book in front of the beautiful vista I’d just earned by scrambling up rocks along the ridge line. But the wind had other ideas – the gusts were so strong up there that I couldn’t hang onto both the book (without it flapping like mad) and the camera. Hence the ground shot. Which is infinitely less interesting than the actual canyon I’d just hiked out of, pictured below.

Still, the hike was breathtaking, heart-pumping, and everything I could have wished…

A friend dropped by….

Sarah Whiteley, a talented poet and I’m happy to say, a good friend, has a new book of poems coming out soon. And she dropped by to give us a little sneak peek!
Here’s a note to you from Sarah….

My dear and talented friend Kathleen is graciously allowing me to sneak over into her space for a moment in order to let her fine readers know about my new chapbook, Wandering Wonderful.

From the moment I first started to read Kathleen’s work and to connect with her outside of The Course of Our Seasons, I just knew that we were kindred spirits. I love our similarities and equally love our differences and I’m hoping that just maybe you will find and love those same similarities and differences.

In any case, I hope that you will enjoy this sneak peak from Wandering Wonderful.

tree talk

the sawara doesn’t give up its secrets –

you have to come back again

and again let your hands ask of it

the same questions

and maybe stop by sometimes to see if

the copper beech has something new to say

one day, I found the blue feathers

of a Steller’s jay lying under the cedar

likely the work of a hungry hawk,

though the wisps of bark were silent

on that question too

Wandering Wonderful will be released in May, but pre-orders are available now through Finishing Line Press here: https://www.finishinglinepress.com/product/wandering-wonderful-by-sarah-whiteley/

Thanks, Sarah, for sharing this exciting news with us! I can’t wait to have a copy of your book this spring.

I love making these tiny books – they fill me with such joy. And I hope that joy shows.

I write each of the micro poems, print, then fold, using a semi-origami style, into tiny books. I then create the cover art for each tiny book. A little arts and craft project that is always an exciting creative outlet.

There are a few left so I thought I would share these with you.

Available are:
Love Poems – 3 left
Rain – 1 left
The Garden – 1 left
Morning on the Cove I – 3 left
Morning on the Cove II – 3 left
A Field Guide to Constellations – 3 left.

They are $3.50 each which includes postage in the US. For my friends in the rest of the world, I will need to get back with you about additional costs.

If you are interested, please email kathleengeverett@gmail.com Let me know which tiny books you would like and with your email address, I can send you an invoice thru PayPal.

Thanks so much – and I am already planning for more next year!
