Colophon: "Traveling Companions is a collection of poems and images that come from our memory and experience of the people, places, objects, and emotions that have kept us company as we have traveled through life. Though not a complete inventory, these 16 recollections represent what we have held onto most dearly and sometimes had to let go of most painfully in our collective 240+ years of living. Manifested as postcard images and folio poems stored in a suitcase, these are souvenirs of our several lifetimes. They are meant to be viewed with the same sense of joy, sadness, longing, humor, and fun with which they were created, much as one would look at souvenirs collected along any journey."
