Starting today I am facing the challenge of stabilizing Golgonooza alone, with the focus no longer scattered by various other forms of income. For the uncharted future ahead I will be searching for the direction of the Press as my sole source. This comes with me galvanized to step lightly into the unknown, unafraid [...]

I am starting a regular column on Vermont Views Magazine. It will be interesting to see where the conversation goes. http://vermontviews.org/vermontviews.org/in_between.html
I am starting to work on a new project about the history of the press, that I will format (hopefully) into a commercial and a letterpress version. I am making the template for the page size, and it will incorporate photos taken by myself and also Dan Carr, my late partner.
Thanks to my friend Brandon Caldwell who donated his time to help transform things here once again. He constructed, single handedly, a stone stair behind Golgonooza to access the hill and some special stones there. Dan and I tried to plant an orchard there of apples, a pear and a cherry years ago (back [...]
I am working on the last stages of a group of books, (making the cases), for the edition of The Reach of the Heart. This Friday is the opening for the second month showing of The Presses of Golgonooza at the David Walter Gallery, with the Brattleboro, VT gallery walk starting at 5:30. [...]
I am working with a friend to scrape, prime and paint the front door of Golgonooza to help revive the good energy. I am renewing its color with a new coat of paint. Thank you to my friend and aide, BI. This got done during the last warm day of October so far.
I came in to the Walter Gallery exhibition of my work for an interview and conversation with Phil Innes, who has a blog and web magazine called Vermont Views. He recorded our conversation and we are hoping that it will be able to be transcribed and put up on the website in the near [...]

I held two poetry readings in conjunction with [...]
After a visit from David Walter and his assistant, another Julia (from David Walter Goldsmith & Platinumsmith) I have been invited to have an exhibition at his Master Craft Gallery in Brattleboro, VT starting in October of this year. I have been organizing the books and broadsides that will be on display and plan to [...]
My friend Gahlord Dewald came and we did some work around the comp casters, photographing the status of the machine as it was when Dan Carr last worked on it and then clearing the top tray. We melted the pot and took off the bridge, then took off the type mould. After we clean the [...]
