Really lovely, Denise. Plus I got to know a little more about you. Thanks for sharing this.
I loved your feature.
wow.going there right now.how exciting.
I was so happy to see you were the next installment for joy + ride. Wonderful words and photos.
kate, Thank you. I was really happy to have been asked to contribute.Lecia, So good to know. Thank you.RW, Hope you enjoyed it. If you have a little free time, there have been many interesting creative minds featured --forty-six issues before mine. The site is filled with inspiration.alexandria, Thanks. I am so happy to be a part of it all.
I enjoyed that, Denise, though you're still a mysterious person after I've read quite a bit about you. You always come across to me as a sparse and perceptive person (sparse as in unfluffy), wise and sure. I'd caption a photo of you 'the enigmatic knitter'.
I love reading your words...feel as if transported to a different place. You make it all come alive....and when are we expecting your first novel to be published?
I'm going to check out the new issue right away, but first I wanted to ask you about the picture on this post - it's very intriguing. Care to tell us more?
Please stay under your bed until all souls day is over. The cat is still prowling around outside.I so enjoyed taking a joy ride with you.xo Jane
Beautiful. Thank you.xoox-me
Congrats Denise! I love the "Behind the Bakery" piece. Thanks for sharing about the VeryShortStory too! What a fun little find.
mise, I like perceptive. I like unfluffy. Wise and sure, both lovely! And 'the enigmatic knitter'... You crack me up! Char, Thank you.Camilla, First novel? Hmmm. Working on it.Mary-Laure, The photograph was made in Connecticut, in my mother-in-law's den. I believe she told me the 'bust' you see is the former head of a large doll. She might have also mentioned it being from England. I'd like to know more about it too. It is pretty intriguing. It captured my attention the moment I saw it (her). flwrjane, No... Okay, but do you think you could bring me a cookie and a glass of milk?Maria, Thank you.annette, Behind the Bakery does seem to be the favorite. VeryShortStory is pretty fun. I love the story about the burnt sausage and the one about the girl refusing to walk down the runway. There are so many I like.
Well you know you're amazingly talented yourself so congrats! I've left another comment on the site but this really touched me and now I can't get the stories or photos out of my head. It's a pity we don't live closer; I feel we'd have a lot to talk about.
I like them all but particularly "Nothing stays the same." A nostalgic but also crystal clear, uncluttered memory. "Macchiato." Love it. And the interview was perfect. Congratulations!
What a lovely site and a beautiful way to share *you*. Loved every word and image.
i look forward to each issue--how great that you were featured!
Congratulations to you. I am so excited to see that you are featured. Will duck across and explore.

I wish I had it recorded.Melissa, I've sent it. Have you received it yet? Check that porch with the free stuff ;)Rachel, Thank you for such a kind complement.
beautiful - i always enjoy your writing, it was so nice to read a bit more about what inspires you. I like the first of your 'three constants', especially to 'capture a fragment of memory'.ps: I like your new profile image too :)
Annie, Thank you for such a kind note. Memory has always been an important thing in my life. Chris took my profile picture, not knowing it would be my profile picture. I thought it was time for a change.
Oh yay! Must check it out...love them!
