Wild Hope — Bluebird Man

2017-06-27

I recently discovered the magazine Wild Hope and was instantly drawn to the beautiful design and photography and message of hope, celebrating nature’s rich biodiversity and sharing inspiring stories of people helping to preserve what sustains us all. I’m thrilled to now offer this magazine at Wilder Goods, you can purchase the latest issue 03, here. Wild Hope was created by Kathryn Arnold. The idea grew out of her time volunteering at the Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito, CA, and

Come As You Are: Beginning Ballet, Late – by: Rose DeMaris

2017-06-08

I confess it’s the clothes that have lured me: soft leather slippers, either blossom-colored or black; leotards that reveal a bare expanse of back; knitted shrugs and warm cocoons for the legs; gossamer skirts that both obscure and highlight the hips; satin pointe shoes married to ribbons by hand-sewn stitches. The trappings of ballet possess a dynamic beauty born of their inherent contrasts. They are practical and ethereal, timeless and ephemeral, functional and beautiful. Delicate and wispy things

Every Night, Before Bed – by Rose DeMaris

2017-01-25

I want to watch my grandma wash her face. For me this is akin to saying, I want to be held, I want to be fed, I want to be warmly tucked into bed.

Mountain Storms by: Ryan Chandler

2015-05-13

This poem is by my dear cousin Ryan Chandler. I have had the pleasure of getting to know him better in the past few years. We have been able to connect through a love for poetry and he is a very inspired writer himself. Ever so often, he shares his words with me and I’m always blown away. See for yourself… Mountain Storms I watch the rain come down from my window, coffee cooling in my mug, which
