A wandering reflection arriving at a "found poem." The muse? Our show with Marie Howe. Simply marvelous.
Our weekly wrap-up with poetry and prose, stories of Easter dishes from afar and links to things we're reading in the news and blogging worlds!
An enchanting hour of poetry drawing on the ways family and religion shape our lives. Marie Howe works and plays with her Catholic upbringing, the universal drama of family, and the ordinary time that sustains us.
