Pythagoras said you can hear all notes in the sound of one plucked string. A single tone—the fundamental—triggers both overtones and sympathetic vibrations.
GINNY BITTING grew up in Mystic, Connecticut and taught in local public schools. As a teenager, she hated sailing lessons. As an adult, she joined a local chorus and met a man with a boat who invited her to take the helm. They married, raised a daughter, exploring east coast waterways from Maine to the Bahamas. Naugatuck Community College published an excerpt of her memoir manuscript, Leaving the Ground, in Confluencia in the Valley. A Room of Her Own selected her poem, "About the Ocean," for publication in the anthology Waves. Ginny is grateful for the writing groups, published authors and friends who sustain and nurture her writing life.
