Episode 3: Through the Ages

From dancing hip hop, measuring bananas, or painting trees to create an illusion, this episode illustrates some of those ways we walk through different stages of life:

mmMerimee Moffitt, “Tiny Bananas”
Merimée Moffitt lives in an oasis inside the city of Albuquerque where the hawks and the owl are keeping the pigeons and doves out of her way this summer. Merimée fell in love with New Mexico 46 years ago: the blue hollyhocks growing up adobe walls in Talpa, the view of the gorge from Taos, the beavers in the creek in Vallecitos, and mostly, the sun almost every single day. She has taught writing at every level from pre-school to college and online through the Story Circle Network, a writing school for women. She is both a poet and a memoirist and is at work on her third book, poems primarily linked by some aspect of addiction and recovery.

Her most recent book, memoir called Free Love, Free Fall: Scenes from the West Coast 60s was published last year.  More about Merimee on her website.
