Modern Day Sirens-Valerie June

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

Ever moving

Toward my dream.
