ABOUT THE BOOK: This is a book of intensely personal poems complimented with a selection of Barbara McCauley Cardona's equally moving and harmonious paintings. Barbara is an accomplished poet and painter, here again her poems and paintings transcend personal experience to touch the reader or viewer deeply. In this volume of work, relationships, the seasons, the natural world all become the subject matter. Accessible and honest, the poems sing of both joy and sorrow that bring us into her world, yet let us find our own reality. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Barbara McCauley Cardona was born in Connecticut in 1939. She discovered painting at age 16 when a friend invited her to join in a neighbor's basement to learn how to use oils. She breathed in the paint's magic and used it to convey her love of the natural world. Writing came earlier: she was very shy, so she started writing to an imaginary friend to express her feelings that, otherwise, she felt she couldn't convey. Poetry came a bit later, but she never called it poetry, as what they taught as poetry in schools, she mostly hated, so her poems were secret "things" that she hid away in drawers. Her earliest means of expression was dance, but she reveals she was too lazy to practice to be what she wanted to be and focused on writing and art instead. Art and spirit have always been conjoined for her. Barbara graduated with BA degree in English from Albertus Magnus College in New Haven, CT in 1961. Her post graduate work in art, creative writing, linguistics and education was at UCLA and the UCLA Extension from 1963 through 1966, and in linguistics, creative writing and literature at California State University in 1971 and 1972.
