New Word of the Week Podcast—Legerdemain (Episode 6)

Posted on 23 May 2014

I have somehow managed to squeeze in another podcast–stealing time. Or as my mother used to say it: Robbing Peter to pay Paul. The word of the week–legerdemain–is fun to say and a wonderful word for me to have learned. Now, what does sleight of hand have to do with writing? Take a listen. Kiini… »

Posted on 4 December 2012

It is legend how my mother kept my grandmother’s eye sockets clean with the pure white feather of a cockatoo. She often sent me to the forests to pick marigolds to stack high around Grandmother’s skull. Grandmother loved the smell of the marigolds. She told me so every time I entered the house with an… »
