Seeing Things

began life in 2003, when Douglas McLennan invited me to write for ArtsJournal.  Since then, essays and reviews that I’ve published elsewhere have also been posted on this site.  A complete archive of the SEEING THINGS site contains all of these postings.

When I started SEEING THINGS, I wrote:  “Ever since I can remember, I’ve had three particular passions:  children, especially pre-literate children (the subset of human society containing the densest population of poets); how people say what they say and the multiple (often ambiguous) meanings that lie behind the words; and looking at things.  These loves have spawned my work:  writing books for the very young; oral history projects; writing about dance and the visual and decorative arts.  Electronic publication has opened new horizons for writing.  That’s why I’m here.”
