Still Life Stories is a poetic antidote of hope and human connection, at a time when the isolation of modern living leaves us with many questions. Still Life Stories explores the themes of family wisdom, spirit guiding us, finding the stillness within, seeking one’s artistic path and celebrating joy. Each slice of life and snapshot of solitude offered in this collection allows the reader to pause and consider the inner life of each narrator. The poems of Still Life Stories help bring us closer to our true nature – our true spirit.

Praise For…

Norcross writes with the tenderness of one who knows that beauty is often born of darkness, and there are joys accessible only through sorrow. In Still Life Stories she offers readers small, polished jewels reclaimed from loved ones who have walked on: a horse remembering its rider; a climbing friend who fell; dances with a ghostly grandfather. Though gone, her loved ones still live. Still Life Stories also touches readers with the writer’s gentle counsel to herself: surrender; break open; feel everything; begin again. Still Life Stories is a small book of treasures.
