Hats, Transkei by kerry rawlinson ***for our July Hats theme***
Born and raised in Africa, kerry has a 6 year-old heart wrapped in a 120-year old brain trapped in a 58-year old body. She’s been a lifetime devotee of “the arts”, inspired by her love of the written word, as well as her father’s darkroom where she helped develop photographs.
Almost 4 decades ago, kerry emigrated to Canada from Zambia with her husband and children, and that required a paying career. Architectural design helped placate the insatiable Godzillas of Family-Town, and writing and creating were relegated to the nooks and crannies of the quiet spots.
Now retired, kerry’s reconnecting her life’s circle. Travel is her passion, and articulating its resulting quirks and glories is her delight; all of which she’ll do until she drops. She lives in the stunning Okanagan Valley of B.C. with her wonderful husband, two cats and a plethora of wineries. When she can find an available sober month or two, she’d like to organize a website to sell her 1,500+ photographs/ art. Some can be seen on http://acolorproject.tumblr.com/.
kerry was recently published in Prospective: Journal of Speculation, (poems and cover art) and is a current finalist in the 2013 Ascent Aspirations Anthology Contest. A novel and children’s books are in progress.
