Resting in the Familiar’s title is from the comfort of recalling family stories. My poetry covers experiences early on as an Air Force brat up to the present. A few events were uncomfortable, a drill of being loaded onto school buses in case our country came under nuclear attack, and my experience in the 2014 Carlton Complex fires. As it says in the first poem, I write about what I see outside my windows: the bay view from my Bellingham residence offered up boats and birds, from my rural home in Central Washington its Black Angus, wildlife and the unexpected.

Christine Kendall was a familiar face at Bellingham open mics and a member of Independent Writers’ Studio until she moved to Twisp, Washington in 2012. She has been writing poetry for many years and this is her second book. She is a member of Confluence Poets in the Methow where she also enjoys riding horses, donning snowshoes in winter and living in a town without stoplights.
