    My Grandma Connie will always be a hero in my books. I wrote about her in my elementary reports. Told my bullies once that they would have to answer to her. She was a true powerful woman, the definition of love. I thank God for making her apart of my...  more

    Blind up space, scattered black seeds of a future;...  more

    What a joy to visit Connie last summer, after decades apart, and find the same loving, smart and funny friend I met at Smith College in 1955. I saw her off and on for the next 25 years, along with mutual college friends, before our paths stopped...  more

  • Connie has been a huge force in my life ever since my own hippie-bohemian-arteeste of a mum first introduced me to her in Caye Caulker, Belize, way back in the winter of 2000. The intro went something like this: "Wait'll you meet my friend, Connie....  more
