Farmlines are the threads that connect people to a place—in this case, a family farm in a time when kids downloaded games in the grove or haymow or from a Parker Brothers box; where they accessed apps by running out the door to a tree house, snow fort, or pickup baseball game; where they made social media connections by talking, scheming, sharing, fighting, and linking up with kids in the community. Times change, but these Farmlines continue to get passed along through stories, daily activities, hopes, disappointments, subtle rituals—through handwritten letters and homemade bread.
Comments about Gogerty’s Writing
“Gogerty develops snapshot messages that expand to enhance the entire narrative. His writing is incredibly clear and yet so lyrical that its precision is not too formal. He infuses the essays with lots of humor and good will and peaceful energy.”
