Poetry I, below, was drafted in 2012 and languished for five years forgotten.  Now in 2017 I am working on books for my siblings, my husband and myself -  biographical, composed of captioned pictures, writings including letters, timelines and memorabilia.  Very little of my production of family history books has been my own writing; to a very large extent they are collections of the writings of my family, past and present. My plan now is to provide commentary about the process of writing the books not covered in previous blog entries, as a sort of contribution to the "writing" section of my own "Life of..." book, as well as to the Niebuhrgathering web site.
