I’m so pleased to share my latest Modern-Day Sirens article was published this morning on Luna Station Quarterly. Valerie has a magical motion to her voice and an intuitive poetic nature, so I’d be honored if you drifted over to the magazine today and checked out my article about her life and music.
I’m including a poem from her first self-illustrated collection, Maps of the Modern World. The book is filled with gems of wisdom and beautiful artwork to enjoy.
I wake up
And face my work
Which is always larger than me
Then I remember that my job
is mostly in the doing
and rarely in the outcome
It is through the doing that
I can afford to trust each step
Toward my dream.
