A collection of my creative work is in my archive in the Schlesinger Library on Women’s History, Radcliffe College, Cambridge, Massachusetts.
I am very grateful for this archive, and that my writings have a home.
In this way, my work is remembered and people have access to it both now and after my passing.
My desire is that an archival location/museum will also be found for my visual Art.
This collection of art, poetry and writing includes photographic collaborations with photographer Steven R. Johnson (see Rubenesque Landscape on this website). In the mid-1980’s I began to collaborate with photographers to document my life, to preserve a record of my journey and to inspire others.
My Creative Writings Include:
- a collection of short stories and poems for children
- free verse poetry
- a collection of short stories (many of these short stories are about people outside the social mainstream)
- experimental theatre, essays and poetry on body image, (including pioneering dance notes on being a full-figured women)
- notes on being an art model (1978-1985)
- Esalen Journey (1986-1987)
- journal writings
- notes on creativity, healing and community
Some examples of this creative work are found elsewhere on this website.
Please contact me if you would like to know more about this material and if you have any comments. Some of it has been published, some as yet unpublished. (This essay, “My Archival Journey” was written in April, 2010).
