Poetry from the 3:15 Experiment: memorial celebration for my mother

August 9, 2010

Suzanne Paquette Lawrence

A talented writer, charismatic performer, devoted historian, committed volunteer, and dedicated mother to her three children and seven grandchildren, Suzanne Lee Paquette Lawrence inspired her family, friends, colleagues, and community throughout her life with her actions, her intellect, and her quick wit.

Passionate about her research into the history of the Bible and of Ventura County, Suzanne enjoyed sharing what she learned through classes she taught and living history performances she gave.

Suzanne loved art, nasturtiums, and cats, especially her tabby Gracie, and a good heirloom tomato BLT.  We will all miss her very much.

Yesterday was my mom Suzanne Lawrence’s Celebration of Life Memorial Service. She liked my 3:15 Experiment poetry so it seemed fitting to read work I composed at 3:15am. I also composed her bio on the program above, worked with the newspaper reporter for this article on Suzanne Lawrence, and wrote her obituary. Below are links to the pieces that I read in the order I read them. I started with something I’d written that night, August 8, 2010 at 3:15, read two older pieces, then read two I wrote this past week.
