Biography:  

I am an retired expatriate, living abroad in Orsa, Sweden. I travel to visit a dear friend
living in Eugene. We are souls connected through
Groundwaters! I hope you will like my
poems.

Barbara Newman was born in NYC. Raised by first generation immigrants, she learned
much about their old country. While attending elementary school she felt strangely
different from those other American children; memorizing past presidents in social
studies, never made sense to her. When she was home with her parents, they talked in
their native tongue and read about princesses, kings and past monarchies. Strangely
foreign herself, Barbara proceeded through school and life, visiting her foster parents’
homeland frequently. She found herself at home along with her returning elders. Barbara
now lives in Sweden 6 months of the year.
