My performances cross the boundaries between cultures, between emotional
and transcendent states, between the spiritual and the sensual, and
between poetry and theater. In the Bay Area Express, Natasha Nargis wrote:
"She works the room with maximum theatricality, drawing those who are
transfixed on the drama before them into her vivid, vibrant world." 
My style has been described by Stefen, a Berkeley muralist, as "more like a dance" 
as I unfold my heart to show the world a reflection of its own beauty.
My hope is that we realize we are not alone, though solitary....and my inner landscape affirms 
that when I perform.
 Cuba and Jerusalem, bursting with life and history and humanity, seemed to erupt into the room. Others, about pain and grief and loss, sunk their hooks into us, touched something deep inside. The energy and empathy of her poems was infectious, and it got us all. --Gabrielle Santiago, Patrick's Cabaret

Holy Cow! Press published an anthology on the theme of Home and  I am honored that my personal essay Seeking Sanctuary is included: 

The Heart of All That Is: Reflections on Home

This beautiful collection  includes poetry and prose from local writers that I know personally such as Margaret Hasse, Cary Waterman, Ethna McKiernan, Jill Breckenridge,  Mary Kay Rummel, and writers I have yet to meet: Karen Herseth Wee, Miriam Weinstein, James Cihlar, Alice Owen Duggan, Molly Sutton Kiefer, Linda Kantner, Julie Landsman, Amy Nash, and Ellen Shriner, and writers that I admire such as Marge Piercy and Naomi Shihab Nye. 

Available at www.holycowpress.org and through Amazon and Barnes and Noble, this collection makes an excellent Christmas present. The work ranges from nostalgia to escape, from roots to homelessness, from where we feel a sense of belonging to where we can spread our wings and fly.
