Moments, Money & Memories
Moments, Money & Memories is a collection of sensitive, personal and highly socially conscious verse. It shies away from traditional flowery language and instead derives its depth and height from directness and grounding in verse all readers can relate to. It speaks of parenthood, poverty, the working poor and personal struggles.
Laurie Childree is an intelligent and direct poet, unafraid of offending the sensibilities of people far more privileged than those whom she writes about. Instead, she invites all readers to have a glimpse into the real lives of struggling heroes; with the same love for family, for gainful employment, and for a bit of pleasure, which goes a long way.
This wonderful book elevates the benign everyday happenstance into a meaningful and thoughtful journey from the creative mind of this lovely, enlightened poet.
I like to jump in puddles during a rain storm and go running at night to catch moon beams. A little weird yet a boatload of fun there is never a dull moment in my world. I am a writer, baker, candle stick maker and mother to a herd I call The Gaggle I believe in Santa, fairies and happily ever after and enjoy a cup of sunshine straight from a buttercup in place of afternoon tea. Butterflies are what keep me focused on many shiny things whenever they happen to pass by. I feel my world in high definition super charged color with sound effects and use my palette to make sense of it with art, and words, and however else I can. Born in PA, raised in CO I am a Colorado girl at heart currently living in the desert of Arizona. I have been here five years and I really miss the snow.
