Additional Praise:

“Hildebidle’s words and internal lyrics have a gentle, if sad, musicality akin to the photographer’s art—a freeze frame on time.”
—Karla Hammond

“Hildebidle’s poetry has the unforced elegance that comes from a mind in turn with itself, that thrills to the world beyond itself, and seeks ways to touch other minds, other lives.”
—Adrian Oktenberg
