Wooden boats and piers. Waving marsh grass and sandy beaches. If you stand back and squint, Cape Cod becomes a place outside of time.
This is where inspiration comes from.
I wander with a notebook and a camera and I record the timelessness between the words that come and the images I find.
Put simply, to create poetry I stand back and squint. I take long walks and pay attention. I allow myself to inhabit the landscape.
This slideshow is a visual sample of what I’ve found.
Cape Cod has many moods.
My photography is point and click, nothing sophisticated, but I love to try to capture the mood, and sometimes I manage it. I actually dream of painting it one day.
My writing springs from the landscape I photograph. It’s all one thing in its way.
So grab your camera and notebook. Watch and listen. See through all your senses. The words are there, the pictures are there, even the paintings are there.
You can find our books wherever good books are sold. Ask at your local bookstore, and if you’re in Orleans, find them at Sea Howl, Cottage Cape Cod, and Oceana.
