Then, SomethingPatricia FargnoliWinner, ForeWord BOTYA Silver MedalWinner, Sheila Motton Book AwardWinner, da Vinci Eye for outstanding designHonorable Mention, Eric Hoffer Award“Fargnoli does not miss a stitch of beauty,neither does she avoid the darker aspects of ourown human awareness of continual aging, towhich she gives sharp and poignant attention.”— Mary Oliver“… confronts the recesses of ‘heavy sadnesses’with a crystallized lyricism and a sensual voice,deciphering the alternate worlds between natureand human, body and spirit. From seeminglyordinary acts like walking the dog, watching thegarbage man, observing the blue rain … Fargnolidraws from quiet yet organic moments metaphysicalquestions of being … her writing issimultaneously a catharsis and a means toassess and communicate the frightening as wellas the inspiring.” – Cerise PressPatricia Fargnoli, former New Hampshire PoetLaureate and a retired psychotherapist, is theauthor of six poetry collections.

Chitwood gives sorrow allits due respect — and no more, so the bookis often laugh-out funny in its wisdom.
