Mary Kellogg is a regular at our Open House. But this past Open House Mary wasn’t there. She had been ill a few weeks back and wasn’t feeling well enough to come.
Jon and our friend and poet, Jackie Thorne and I visited Mary last week. She was looking so much better than she sounded the last time I spoke to her on the phone.
And of course, when I asked Mary if I could take a video of her reading one of her new poems she was happy to.
Mary plans on being at the next Open House in October. We’re even talking about putting together a new book of her poetry. It will be her forth, since she started publishing her work, in the past ten years.
