Rooted in the Midwest but at home anywhere, Glenna Luschei has spent over fifty years writing and supporting other writers in the midst of adventures that have taken her around the globe. Now in her late eighties and as vibrant as ever, Luschei has crafted a collection that comprises a retrospective of her life: her youth during World War II; her adventures in New Mexico, Colombia, Cuba, and elsewhere; and her ongoing love affair with the arts. Luschei relives highs and lows through these poems and reminds readers to live life to the fullest as we never know if tomorrow will be our last day. Join Luschei as she embraces the gift of living and a life that is full of hope and love rather than regret in this reflective work.
Glenna Luschei is the author of more than twenty-five books, including The Sky Is Shooting Blue Arrows: Poems (UNM Press), and she is the founder and publisher of Solo Press. She lives in San Luis Obispo, California.
"Glenna Luschei, poet and translator, is an elder writing from the bardo, that moment beyond vibrant wildness but before inevitable departure from this life. These deeply rooted poems, like Ms. Luschei, are blooming century plants, towering and powerful in their final days."--Peggy Shumaker, author of Cairn: New and Selected Poems
