|Walking on Stars and Water by Martina Nicholson
ISBN: 978-1-931575-68-3, 106 pg, $8.00 (includes P&S) This is the second
book of poems by Dr. Nicholson. She is a practicing Ob-Gyn, and these
poems reflect faith and spirituality, and concerns about illness
and the meaning of suffering from a woman's perspective. Dr. Nicholson
was in the Peace Corps in Paraguay, in 1972-74, before she became a physician.
Some of these poems are dedicated to Paul Farmer MD, who is a deeply gifted
and caring physician working in Haiti and other 3rd world countries.
Dr. Nicholson's father was a painter; she grew up watching him paint
landscapes. Some poems are an attempt to paint pictures with words.
Many poems are concerned with the meaning of our work, and of human life.

Throat is Full of Songbirds and was also published by Old Mountain
Press. To order send check or money order to Martina Nicholson, PO Box
