ANNE'S RAVES and HOWLS

anne07.jpg.jpg

Welcome! 
 
I'm  Anne Morin, from Portland, Oregon, USA. 
This site describes me, who I am, and some of the things I'm into, for pleasure and/or for treasure.

i WRITE. 

You can find my rather prolonged attempt  at writing

PROSE
I'm still working on it!  

POETRY
I read a great deal of poetry; I write a modicum of poetry; and some of these (my own and favorites written by others) have been posted on my
 Writer/Editor Page.  I'm also known as an excellent editor of both prose and poetry.

AND I COLLECT POETRY:

You can find a collection of horse poems I've gleaned from many sources over the years for my daughter, Nico, on the web page I created at  http://rave_n_howl.tripod.com.

I CELEBRATE POETRY:

NATIONAL POETRY MONTH
every year on FACEBOOK with a poem for every day of the month of April.


   I also really enjoy creating  YouTube slideshows  that sometimes include poetry and music and portray a variety of  special events that might appear on some of my sites, a few of which are:  

 June Key Delta Community Center Demonstration Garden:

Joanne Shenandoah Mill-Luck Salmon Celebration

among many others!

I have served as an ARTISTS' REPRESENTATIVE, creating websites, and writing, publishing and performing other business tasks for local artists. 
One of my clients, for whom I have created a popular website, includes my dear old friend, poet, and cultural consultant,

CHAP BOOK PUBLISHER!
Maybe you have a group of fabulous poems you've written and would like to see themcollected in book form.  I can help you with the process of deciding which poems to include, which font(s), paper stock, colors,forms, etc., you wish to use, and I will produce the numbers of chap books you think you'll need. You can find some examples of chap books I've produced on the Publish Yours! Page. I look forward to facilitating your CHAPBOOK debut!



AND NOW that I'm 74 . . . I am a budding WATERCOLOR ARTIST!

You can find my watercolor paintings on Facebook (Anne Morin), at a show at the Clackamas Community College Harmony Campus, around the homes of various friends and family and, of course, in my own home.  I am writing a blog about this exciting journey and will post it here when I'm done.

The outstanding sound you hear on this site is provided (with her permission) by Joanne Shenandoah on her CD, Matriarch: Iroquois Women's SongsJoanne is a personal friend and greatly admired custodian of the music and culture of her tribe. 
The collection of recordings on the CD from which comes this lovely song "Kahawi'tha" ("She Carries It Along"), dedicated to Joanne's very special daughter, Leah, was also dedicated to the Shenandoah family and all lifegivers of Mother Earth. 
 What I especially appreciate about this work by Joanne is that her people, the Haudenosaunee, believe " . . . the Earth is a living organism with its own form of consciousness. 
They feel by holding women in high esteem they are also paying homage to Mother Earth."

PLEASE NOTE: MY FRIEND AND WORLD-RENOWNED NATIVE MUSICIAN, JOANNE SHENANDOAH, IS SERIOUSLY ILL. SHE HAS JUST BEEN APPROVED FOR AN ORGAN TRANSPLANT BUT, OF COURSE, THIS IS A HUGE EXPENSE, AND THE FAMILY IS TRYING TO RAISE MONEY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE IF YOU POSSIBLY CAN!
