what is a “gumboot” and what is a “gumshoe”? what am i doing here?


these are the stories (and verses) of my life on top of a mountain in a rural town in vermont, filling in the gaps between seasons and chores and the cycle of life that swings around me. it’s a paean to quadrupeds and hens and songbirds and weeds and all the lovely and awful things that my life can muster. which sometimes includes myself.

so, put on your gumboots and tromp out into the mud with me. maybe we’ll learn something we didn’t know before. be proper detectives. gumshoes, if you will.

  1. Ah, a Bloggess connection. Even better. I began following her when she wrote for the Houston Chronicle’s Mama Drama, years ago when Mommy Bloggers were just getting started. Everyone starts somewhere. All the best to you!
