A River Park

“My perfect weekend is going for a walk with my family in the park. I don’t think there’s anything better.”
– Anne Wojcicki


Countryside Blossoms

“Flowers heal me. Tulips make me happy. I keep myself surrounded by them as soon as they start coming to the island from Canada, and after that when they come from the fields in La Connor, not far from where I live.”
– Rebecca Wells

Wings of the Hall

“Who am I? Flying, I live,
and sometimes I make songs:
flower songs, butterflies of songs—
such as reveal my sentiments,
such as express my heart.

I arrive at the side of others. I descend
and alight on earth, the red macaw of spring.
I stretch my wings beside the flower drums,
my song lifts and spreads over the earth.”
— Peter Everwine
