Welcome Kathleen A. Lawrence, a delightful poet and wonderful collaborator! I am excited to feature Amelia, Lost and Found, which muses about the fate of explorer Amelia Earhart; A Wall of Peaches of Immortality, in celebration of one of nature’s choicest fruits; Kangaroo Court, an abcedarian that pokes fun at modern politicians and celebrities; and Entanglements Under a Forest Canopy, which takes us into the forest for a look at nature’s treasures there.
In her own words:
Kathleen A. Lawrence was born in Rochester, New York—home of the Garbage Plate, Kodachrome, and Cab Calloway—and spent most of her youth in a plaid jumper. Briefly, she left to get a pesky Ph.D., then returned to Central NY in 1992, where she has been an educator for 30 years, teaching Communication, Popular Culture, and Gender Studies at SUNY Cortland. She loves writing poetry and eating cupcakes. She’s totally obsessed with cupcakes. If alone on a deserted island Lawrence claims all she would need is a yellow legal pad, No. 2 pencil, and dozens of raspberry buttercream little cakes to keep her happy.
Here are a few links to her delightful poetry:
