    Cynthia has the ability to take the common, everyday…and make it sacred.

    I’ve never visited Maine but Cynthia’s poems make me free close to fiddleheads, fieldstone, the drumbeats and birch bark of the Amaseconti. Keep more coming! I am familiar with The Aurorean: a great poetry ambassador; her greeting card photography speaks for the Northeast.

    Through Cynthia’s ability to capture the perfect moment and preserve it in verse…thank you! This time of year, especially, it is a precious reminder of home. Always continue writing.
