One of the things we love about the house is its history -- it used to belong to June Jordan, a poet and activist. She lived here for 11 or 12 years until she died in 2002 of breast cancer. She wrote a poem called Trumpet Vine near the end of her life, and there are trumpet vines growing outside several of our windows, which we imagine was the inspiration for the poem.
