born Carol Mae Ray in Miami, Florida, and, though I still love the sight
of green fronds waving in a breeze against an azure sky, I am a transplanted
New Englander now. I live a busy retired life in Rhode Island under
the name Carol Anderheggen.
In addition to
writing (and sometimes being published in regional journals here in
the Northeast) I am an active American Red Cross volunteer on national
disaster responses. You might wonder what a poet is doing for the Red
Cross—I enlist my “left brain” computer talents in helping to install
and support technology on their responses. And, yes, I was in NYC on
September 13th, 2001 and worked my heart out for two months. (For more
information on the Red Cross check out http://www.redcross.org)
My spiritual home
for my poetic self is The Frost Place, Franconia, NH where I work on
the staff of The Frost Festival of Poetry every summer. If you are a
poet looking for an authentic learning and writing experience consider
applying to The Festival at http://www.frostplace.org.
If you are fortunate enough to be accepted you will never regret it!
Help yourself to
my poetry. Please give me credit if you want to print it out and share
it—that is all I ask. If you would like to communicate with me about
the poetry, the Red Cross, New England, cats (there are four who own
me) or whatever please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Enjoy and come back in a year. I may have posted some new poems!
