|| The golden valley only opened
once a year and when it shut, only the tiniest chink remained.
She had to leave to travel the maze, but she was afraid of losing

Rope of Words is a fine printed book created
by Lin Kerr and written by Megan Kerr, a mother-and-daughter collaboration.

The first edition was made possible by a bequest from
Christine Vlietstra, mother (aka Mom) to Lin Kerr and grandmother
(aka Granny Mom) to Megan Kerr, making this a project across three
generations of women. We are so grateful to her generosity and to
the example of life and art she set for us. Christine Vlietstra's
paintings have been distributed between her six children and seventeen
grandchildren; a small selection of her work is shown below.
