I wrote the first draft of this text in a workshop on fairytale poems with Leonora Siminovis organized by Hugo House in February 2022. It changed quite a bit since, but I am still riffing on my last name, which is very common in parts of Germany.

Intriguing snapshot of a family history. My family came to America after betting on Bonny Prince Charles … and losing!🤣
I figured there was something Scottish in your texts. I spent 10 years in England’s north. My family is still in Germany.
I very much appreciate getting your comments.
