Mary Kellogg is 83 now, she is beautiful and fit and strong, a powerful and creative woman who lives her life on her own terms on her own 30 acre farm every day. She is a great friend of Maria and I, she has read from her poetry at every public event we have held, she has published two successful volumes of poetry – Whistling Woman and My Place On Earth, she is a dear friend and remarkable human being. She read several of her older poems and several new ones, they were all beautiful and she added a touch of grace and dignity to the Open House. She will return in September for the second Open House on September 1.
Mary’s books have gone into several printings and have sold thousands of copies, not bad for a poet who first published her work at the age of 80.
