ImageJEAN LYFORD AT ORINDA BOOKS: Our meeting on June 25th took a different turn when, after our regular lunch at OCC, we traveled to Orinda Books to hear our former club president and dear friend, Jean Lyford, do a reading of her latest collection of poetry, "Waiting for the Wind."  The event was both moving and comical, as Jean shared poems written during her struggle with stage four breast cancer, as well as light-hearted anecdotes from her days as an educator and administrator in the Orinda Schools. The poems themselves offer astute observations of the natural world, along with deep psychological insights. One review states, "The process of looking back over a lifetime of memories to create a meaningful narrative of one’s time on Earth is beautifully portrayed in this luminous new work."

After the reading, Jean took time to sign her books and greet long-time friends and admirers one-by-one.  An article about Jean's pursuit of poetry as art and about what inspires her is well worth reading.

With tears in our eyes, but smiles on our faces, we are grateful to have had the chance to hear Jean's lyrical poetry.
