Mueller's work so inspires me,
I dedicated Arias to her. She's also won a Pulitzer, so
you don't have to take my word for it.
This woman took my breath away with a
poem that was published after her death in 2003. It turns
out it was her only poem, and I was deeply saddened that
she hadn't written more. But she did paint--and what paintings.
Here's the poem and an online gallery of her art.
Gordon-Reed, an attorney, wrote
the excellent book,
Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemings, An American Controversy,
presenting the "case"--witnesses, evidence, documents--on
a story that I had researched in 1963 for a history seminar.
Gordon-Reed did a magnificent job of telling this once "unthinkable"
story. It's a joy to see it finally known and understood,
thanks in large part to Gordon-Reed. Here's
my 1963 paper: Jefferson
& Black Sal, Rumor Confirmed.
The three artists below have taken my spirit
so far into realms beyond, the poem Clergy
is about them.

his works and his thoughts.
gave up painting some years
ago to focus on his pioneering
way of teaching anatomy (human, equine and canine).
I know his revolutionary teaching is important, but I hope
he still paints privately. His paintings were/are extraordinary.
composes, writes and performs country, rock and jazz. She
wrote, directed and starred in a musical about the Hunchback
of Notre Dame. She paints too. Formidable talent, this woman.
She's done everything from busking on street corners in
New Orleans to opening for Johnny Halliday on tour in Europe.

Hedgebrook retreat for women writers
And there's a place that gives me goose
bumps and makes me want to sit down and write my heart out—the
Hedgebrook retreat for
women writers. I was on the Board of Directors there
for some years and never failed to be thrilled by the respect
and love for women's voices that emanates from every square
inch of that land and those buildings. A detail that says
it all: in the writers' cottages, all the window glass is
beveled, to play with the incoming light. Makes me cry every
time I see it.
