Dream of the Huntress is a collection of poems, stories, photographs, music and art, to reconnect you to the importance of wildness within and without.
Curated with love, through endless reading & dreaming & seeking by Leonore Tjia. Inspired by cross-country travels, hundreds of hours at sexuality workshops, folk music gatherings, on-farm slaughters in Vermont, bohemian cafes in New York City, frank conversations with strangers and the moments of transcendence when the magical meets the mundane.
Because life is too short to go numb to the beauty of the world. And in the immortal words of Audre Lorde, “Poetry is the way we help give name to the nameless so it can be thought. The farthest external horizons of our hopes and fears are cobbled by our poems, carved from the rock experiences of our daily lives.”
The Daily Poem Project — since September 2013
I met my friend Alex Beeken at a folk music singing camp in the Sierra Mountains, in 2005. He was sixteen. We saw and sang each other off and on until, in late August 2013, we started a daily poem correspondence–vowing to e-mail each other daily in order to counteract the creative numbness that came from having no one to share with. He’s been my faithful companion in poetry since then.
Modernist Folk Music
I met Tymon Brown in the spring of 2010 and over the course of fourteen months we recorded a short EP of our original songs and a few traditional arrangements, called Rose Colored Ships. “Mhara” (pronounced “wara”) means “the sea” in Irish. Click here to listen.
