  • Ice Designs

    Ice as thin and breakable as glass sometimes remains after a shallow layer of water drains away.

  • Books on the shelf, books as a lifeline

    When I moved back to America in 1992, I brought two small children, a desk that had belonged to T. S. Eliot, and a whole lot of books. The kids came with me, by plane, but the books and the desk went by boat. The kids and I had dropped into rural life in upstate […]
