Jean Bell is a retired computer science professor, a potter, and a poet. She lives on the ranch her husband’s family homesteaded on Blue Creek in the mountains near Evergreen, Colorado. Place is significant in her poems because many of them reflect sights and sounds around her home – cold winters, the old red barn, chickadees at the birdfeeder. Home is also the theme for many poems about people in her life: an afternoon nap with her young grandson, a walk in the woods with her husband. Written over a period of a dozen years, the poems in this book offer glimpses of life, and death, at home on Blue Creek.
