When I Stand Before God



"When I stand before God at the end of my life,
I would hope that I would have not a single bit of talent left and could say,
“I used everything You gave me.”

An Amazing Story


I am sharing with you
an email I received yesterday
as it is quite moving:

"Greetings. First of all, I want to tell you how much I enjoy your work. I was first introduced to it when you had a showing at Awentree for one of the Artwalks. A little while ago, I had remembered the beautiful photos that you had taken of St. Brigid's Cemetery on Everett Street in Easthampton, so my Hubby and I decided to go and check it out..( We both love the peaceful Serenity of Graveyards.)
While there I noticed that my Husband had been drawn to the back of the graveyard..to these small crudely made stones. He was standing there with this blank look on his face....I knelt down and read the stones..which were handwritten in French..and I recognized the names on the stones. They were my Maiden name...Riel..and they were of children that had been either stillborn, or died of the influenza epidemic. I mentioned it to my Dad. He never even knew that the graves were there, even though he had been to this graveyard many times. Well, my dad did research on these graves, and these children belonged to my Great Great..Grandmother..I feel that these children wanted ,in their own way, to be remembered. So thank you for your work..and for helping these children to be remembered..."

I am blessed.
Here, an image from the exhibition, 
taken at St. Brigid's Cemetery:

"Dennis Barone......one of the more interesting--and adventuresome--of American fiction writers"


This from a review of my brother's new book,
On The Bus: Selected Stories,
which arrived in today's mail
and which I immediately started to read.
Self Portrait. January 3, 2011
I should add 
the cover photograph is by me


Let's read what Gray Jacobik writes about my brother's book:

"I love this book! Dennis Barone is a genius.
The verbal, rhetorical, gestural, imaginative resources he orchestrates--
or is it choreographs?--or is it paints--in
On The Bus: Selected Stories,
exhilarate at every turn
(riffs, digressions, conflations, elaborations, subtractions, puns, and so on),
tumble forth pell-mell, helter-skelter, topsy-turvy......
it's a celebration of language quo language married to the texture of existence."

My brother, Dennis Barone,
is the author or editor of twenty-two books,
professor of English and director of the American Studies program at Saint Joseph College 
and the former poet laureate of West Hartford, CT.

New Year, New Day

A new day, a new year, a new beginning! Today everyone is thinking in terms of newness. We may feel as if we have emerged out of an old world into a new one, as if we are taking hold of a new life, as if the very Spirit of newness is alive in us.

I dedicate this day to new ideas, new viewpoints and renewed living. I leave behind outgrown thoughts of past limitations and lack. I let go of old grudges and outdated viewpoints. Fresh ideas refresh my mind. I make room for new, vital, healthy and prosperous ideas.

My world is new as I respond to life in a new way. I see people and situations in a new light. I begin today by acknowledging the Spirit of newness within me, and I am renewed in mind, body and spirit.
