QUOTES OF NOTE
“ Aurora is a wonderful book of light and dark daily things that flow outward into everything dark and light. In mind and heart and laughter, it’s big book, full of surprises. Poem by poem, like startling steps, a reader is led into the sequence ‘Gala Roses,’ where one hangs on for Dear Life.” —Robin Blaser
