of Geraldine for my chapbpook. This is in 1967, when she was 17.
I received a blog award for my photos from Dick at Eye on Texel and I
am passing it on to three people:
OK, so four, I can't count. Lots of others of you also deserve an award! If you are here reading
this, you are probably one of the winners in my book!

Face: Geraldine Neely, 1975, by Mary Stebbins Taitt. This is a rough smudge painting of an imaginary woman about whom I am writing a "novel" in "poetry." Well, I am writing something, anyway. LOL! I may use a version of this as the cover of the book, or inside as an illustration. For Inspire me Thursday Faces theme. OK, I just added a new version (above). I thought I was done when I originally posted it, but kept seeing things I wanted to change. Now I think it is still not done, but I am out of time. You can view a poem about Geraldine when she was younger than this picture (she's 25 here). It is an early draft of the poem, which has since gone through a number of revisions, and it's formatting is a messed up, but it will tell you a little about Geraldine as a girl.
