Casey Bottono is an author and poet. She is currently conducting experiments in writing from the body, art as personal growth as art (for artists and ordinary mortals) and the boundaries between you and me as we evolve, heal and discover emerging ways of being together. She invites you to connect and join the experiment at www.caseybottono.com

Stones in the Road by Casey Bottono
"This author writes verse as if it were her mother tongue. Bottono uses imagery and metaphor to speak to the human condition, and it still baffles me how much message she can compress into so few words."
