Item Description

"FROM A GHOST TRAP" - My buoy marks a GHOST TRAP, which I think is what they used to call traps that got loose from their buoys and went on trapping lobsters no one would ever harvest. Naturally, it's actually about relationships... I understand the traps now are designed in such a way that the lobsters can find their ways out, but this is one of the really old, pre-humanitarian traps. Thus may we squeeze yet more meaning from this mixed media metaphor...


Kate Braestrup is a community minister, law enforcement chaplain, and the author of the New York Times bestselling memoir, Here If You Need Me, Marriage and Other Acts of Charity and Beginner's Grace: Bringing Prayer to Life.
