Dreams Laid Down

Janice Notland’s first collection of poetry was inspired while living in a rural home outside of Nelson, British Columbia. Though her love of nature infuses all of her work, the poems in this book range from the intensely personal and introspective to outpourings of universal joy. Her keen-eyed observations of the everyday and the extraordinary evoke memorable images. At the request of Alan Rinehart, California composer Michael Karmon wrote these six wonderful musical impressions of poems from ‘Dreams Laid Down’. Please feel free to play or download these complete recordings. ‘Dreams Laid Down’ are included on Alan Rinehart’s upcoming recording of new guitar music. For more information on Michael Karmon’s other works visit: www.michaelkarmon.com

Janice Notland’s readings of selected poems from the book will be available on this page soon.
