Salon 615: What Lies Beneath Us

 

Sandee Gertz - Author/WriterNashville, TN – I’ve always been interested in what lies beneath the ground I tread on each day. In adolescence, my girlfriends and I wore so many grooves into the cracked sidewalks—often dipping into alleys to watch the boys play hockey—that as an adult, I began to wonder what kind of geology lay just beneath my urban, yet Appalachian home of Johnstown, Pennsylvania.

I explored this, and how that landscape may have shaped me in my poetry collection, The Pattern Maker’s Daughter.

Salon 615: “BAD Brothers”

 

Sandee Gertz - Author/WriterNashville, TN – Most people you meet in Downtown Nashville who frequent Back Alley Diner, located at 217 Arcade Alley and nestled—literally in a back alley—between Church and Union Streets call it one of those rare “hidden gems.”

They didn’t have to convince me of the “hidden” part as it took Jordan and I a half-hour of walking in circles last February in the snow to find that it was actually less than a five-minute diagonal dash from his apartment.

But if finding it was difficult, discovering the “gem” part of the equation was more than easy.  Welcomed by a friendly, soft-spoken young man into the warm century-old structure—we could see right away that the atmosphere was one of a kind.

Salon 615: Sandee Gertz

 

Nashville, TN - Hello to the readers of Clarksville Online! My name is Sandee Gertz and I’m a writer, poet, and distracted observer of everything by the side of the road. And in my new Music City home in the middle of Downtown Nashville, I’ve found there is plenty to excite, inspire, shock, and plain old fascinate here in the most urban place I’ve ever lived.

The diversity of the music, culture, art (and street life) is endless.
