Article in Take Magazine

Besides the obvious thrill of seeing an article about myself published online, I find I always learn something about myself and my work when I respond to the questions I am asked in an interview whether it be by way of email, phone, or in person. Take Magazine is about New England culture so she asked questions about what living in Massachusetts and New England meant to me.

“I love living in the part of the country where Dickinson, Thoreau, Emerson, and Whittier among many others lived and worked,” Gaylord says. She identifies with these literary greats and “their sense that the glory of nature can be found equally in something as small as a flower and as large as a mountain or as vast as the sea,” all of which are easily found in the varietal landscapes of New England. “I have spent more than half my life in the Merrimack Valley, first in the Lowell area where I began my life in the arts and immersed myself in the writing of Jack Kerouac, and then in Newburyport, where the river meets the sea, for the past 32.”
