As the child of an Air Force career man, poet Miriam Susan Carstons grappled with the advantages and pitfalls of a nomadic youth. By the time she was 17, she had settled and pulled up roots from New York, New Mexico, New Jersey, California, Maryland, Virginia, and Japan. And it was in Japan that an inward journey would also begin.
In her collection, Somewhere Between Dreams and Memories, Miriam continues that inner journey with a unique and insightful perspective that touches on a plethora of topics from creation to reincarnation, to human nature, to mother nature, to love.
Whether Miriam is offering up an observation, expanding on a notion or just telling a memory story; her poems are alive with imagination and possibility."
