    I think I would really like Jane. I love the titles of her books and the suggestions therein regarding the subject matter. I’m not at all sure I could absorb it through poetry. Is it all poetry? “It’s not her. It’s me.”

    Twelve books! And counting… Some people make you feel incredibly underachieving and Jane definitely comes in that category. Sounds like she has plenty of life experience to draw from and I love her writing process. I will look out for her books. 🙂 Thanks, Renee.

  6. Thanks, Renee. I’m always excited to discover a new poet. If I don’t get by again before Christmas I want to wish you and yours a wonderful holiday. 🙂

  7. What a creative, encouraging, insightful and as her words said, “down to earth” spirit. She embodies a sensitive and healthy approach. How generous of her to create plain-Jane cards and give them away. I can tell you were very taken and touched by her. Thank you for sharing your wonderful experiences, Renee, so that we may meet such writers as Jane. You too, are very generous in sharing your writing journey and so much that it encompasses such as the people you meet, the course of study you pursue and practices. I really enjoyed meeting Jane through your interview.

    • Georgette, that is such a lovely comment! I do try to share whatever I can, and learn from those who have already achieved what I am working to do. You have the right perception of Jane. I am so glad that came across through this interview. Thank you for your kind words.

    Thank you for writing such a lovely post Renee. I marvel at the talent of and goodness of Jane and am sure her poetry memoir on aging would be enjoyable as well as inspiring too.

    There is a poem she wrote that I loved so much when I saw it (in 1983!) that I put it in my wedding scrapbook. It’s called “I Thought of You”. I’m not putting it in my son and daughter-in-law’s scrapbook. I will have to look up more of her work — thanks for this article!
