1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By John C. Dofflemyer on September 21, 2009
Format: Paperback
In 1994, Laurie received the `Dry Crik Chapbook Award' recognizing `the poetic achievement of a past contributor to Dry Crik Review - an individual whose work furthers the understanding & connection of man to the land'. That 1995 print run of BLUE HERON has long been out of print. INFINITE POSSIBILITIES is her fifth poetry title since then. ACROSS THE HIGH DIVIDE from Ghost Road Press received the Spur Award from the Western Writers of America in 2007.

The prospect of recouping printing costs for a collection of haiku is a real challenge for a small press in these times. Each of Laurie's haiku is delightfully personal and insightful, but this is more than just haiku because Filter Press has designed the book to be an attractive journal as well. None of the pages of INFINITE POSSIBILITES is numbered and each is nearly blank without lines, save for two or three of Laurie's haiku at the top or the bottom, allowing readers lots of room to put their own thoughts down.

'Give me one more chance
to dance naked in the moon light
capture childish joy.'

The book may be aimed towards women writers, but I intend to keep my copy on top of my desk and try to use it regularly, let Laurie's haiku trigger lines of my own first thing in the morning. She wrote these 365 haiku during a year while she and her late husband were ranching near Fairplay, each one a specific observation or little epiphany from that Rocky Mountain landscape.

'Was that a blackbird
or just the squeaky gate hinge
in my husband's hands?'

INFINITE POSSIBILITIES makes a perfect gift for introspective friends and writers, to become a special place ready to record daily thoughts and events in more artful ways than ordinary journals.

Format: Paperback
The simple format of the Haiku can bring out the message very well. "Infinite Possibilities: A Haiku Journal" is a collection of haikus, one for each day of the year offering her random thoughts through the seasons. Filled with simple and attractive verse, "Infinite Possibilities" is a haiku book that will be enjoyed by many. A sample: Raven tries to fly/with plastic-wrapped candy stick/blood red in his beak.

I was told it was in used condition, but it came in brand new. It had the plastic and the original stamp. The book looked never read.
