One Small Corner with its subtitle, A Kingsbrae Chronicle, is now available at CreateSpace. It will also be available online at Amazon in a very short time.
One Small Corner consists of 102 pages. The poems were written at Kingsbrae during the June 2017 residency of the KIRA program (Kingsbrae International Residency for Artists).
My thanks and best wishes go out to all (too many to name individually) who helped me to write and publish these Kingsbrae poems. The three standing stones in the above photo were unveiled on June 21 to coincide with the summer solstice. They resonate for me with all the history of the standing — and Gorsedd — stones that occur throughout Wales (and Ireland and the rest of the British Isles) and are exemplified in Stonehenge (3,500 BCE).
One Small Corner has several linked meanings. In the above photo, taken by Carlos Carty (thanks, Carlos), I am writing in the one small corner of my room, so thoughtfully provided with a desk and a view out over Minister’s Island and Passamaquoddy Bay. One Small Corner also refers to the KIRA Residence itself, to the Kingsbrae Gardens with their multiple small and delightful corners, to Jarea and Holt’s Point, to the delightful sea-side town of St. Andrews, and to the Sunbury Shore region of New Brunswick. A more personal meaning is that of the one small corner within ourselves from which we write and create.
