These pieces display a remarkable collection of memories and fantasies, beautifully expressed. Poet Jeanne Lohmann uses short prose sketches to recall her girlhood, from jump rope klutz to drama queen, with nostalgia for streetcars and old movies. She shares what she learned about war from being a volunteer in post-WWII Europe. She remembers sensual experiences throughout her life from blueberry pie to encounters with men―some welcome, others intrusive. Her writing about aging, widowhood, and loss is honest and wise. She takes her reader for walks in the forest and on the beach. Many of these pieces are fantasies, dreams, magical stories―some humorous and others frightening. Some of these sketches read like mood pieces, and others like polished short stories
