Here I am at a local Arts and Crafts Fair displaying and offering my new poetry book WOMAN WANDERING 1975-2015 The response was warm and complimentary. Now I am holding the book in my hands. I feel its personal power. It wants to be shared and read. What an appropriate time of the year to be thankful and grateful for the joy of writing about the memories of my life as a woman, mother, artist, educator and lover of Nature and new places.

WOMAN WANDERING 1975 -- 2015 POEMS BY NINA TEPEDINO
Woman Wandering is a collection of fifty poems spanning forty years of poetic reflection. It is a memoir in poetry, the new genre, to be considered and honored as my style to chronicle my life as a woman...my life as artist...my life as teacher...my life with Nature... my delights and displeasures and my elder wisdom to be absorbed and heard. As I walk toward the Tree of Life, an elder Black Oak at the Gold Ridge Farm in Sebastopol, California, I embrace the living and growth in my life, as my creative force prospers and continues to wander.
