Thayer Cory D ’65
Finish Line Press, February 2018
Thayer Cory was raised with four siblings in New Jersey but feels most at home on the shore of eastern Long Island and in the wilds of New England. After college (political science) and graduate school (psychology and religion) in the Boston area, she moved to Williamsburg, VA, where she raised two children and helped raise two stepchildren. She and her husband are avid hikers and have walked through much of Europe, including the Camino de Santiago in France and Spain. Her work as a psychotherapist in both public and private settings for 35 years continually inspires her to see the world from many perspectives, and her involvement in Williamsburg Friends Meeting (Quakers) keeps her grounded in a spiritual community. Her commitment to her four children and seven grandchildren is also a driving force in her life. All these experiences nurture and inform her poetry. Her poems search for the threads that keep us connected to human relationships, to the natural world, and to the divine.
