For Jeffrey Bartfeld photography and poetry are lights that illuminate the natural world he loves. They are the tools with which he uncovers its mysteries, ponders them as they sink inside him. They lure him to nature’s trails, to its meadows and hills, its lakes and streams, in the soft mist of morning and the delicate hues of dawn and dusk. For almost 50 years Jeffrey has taken photographs and written poetry, a combination which has created an everlasting conversation between subject and artist, which is deeply felt.

Rayne O’Brian lives in a yellow Victorian with her two long-haired dictionaries. Her chapbook, Living on a Song a Day, was recently published by Blue Light Press

Steve Trenam – There are few activities that give me more pleasure than nudging words across the blankly disquieting page, and pushing clay around, into and through itself. I have been fortunate to work in two disciplines, writing and ceramics, and I have discovered the end result seldom exactly matches the goal in either. It is the work that matters — the engagement of my imagination, the intuitive use of my mind and hands. If you read my book, An Affront to Gravity, you will find me out on a leafless limb with just spider webs and moss, listening to the silken slip of water over stone.
