by Judith Nielsen
note from you
tucked inside my
a gentle reminder—
a trail of words, mountains, spirit and tears, this writer, mother, wife, and
eventually psychoanalyst left Texas for Colorado in 1985. The land of the
Arapahoe welcomed Judith Nielsen and called her by name. The love of poetry,
poet, and high mountain valleys has warmed her heart and made her home. Freud
said, “Everywhere I go, the poet has been there before me.” May we keep
following those footsteps on our paths through the worlds. This contributor has
taught contemplative psychotherapy at Naropa University, practices
psychoanalysis, and writes poetry.
Bernice Holtzman’s paintings and collages have appeared in shows at various venues in Manhattan,
including the Back Fence in Greenwich Village, the Producer’s Club, the Black Door
Gallery on W. 26th St., and one other place she can’t remember, but it
was in a basement, and she was well received.
