What does “Between The Pond and the Woods” mean?
This site’s name has meaning on three different levels. First, it describes the literal place where the author lives: a writing retreat that lies between a photogenic fishing pond and the edge of the Pocono forest. Second, it is the title of a memoir that is waiting patiently for a kiss from the right publisher. Finally, on a metaphorical level, the title refers to the span of life which occurs between conception (the gestational pond) and death (woods=ashes to ashes).
