Inhospitable Goat People: A Scottsdale Ghost Story

We lived on property near the north west corner of Shea and Scottsdale, back when gray-green waves of virgin desert roiled towards Scottsdale Road, chasing it all the way to Cave Creek, a town fifteen miles further north.  Just two houses sat on the lot. Ours was long and flat, built of block and as inspired as a public restroom along the…

FFHL Blog--"Story not to be used"--posted by Rachel Hedman

When I find the word "famine" in my everyday readings, I pause and wonder how this might influence the kinds of stories I share for the "Family Famine: Hunger for Love" narrative production.

Part of my artist statement says, "I am exploring the strength of family relationships within the lives of historical, mythical,… Continue
