I am sooooo close to being finished with the book–but there always seems to be just one more edit, one more revision–I'm really going to need a break after this. I am encouraged, though, as I've met people who can help me on the road to self-publishing–an editor, someone to do layout, advice on a printer, and an author's services group that can assist with marketing and promotion. Obviously there's a long way to go to make this a bonifide physical book, but at least the horizon is not going to keep receding forever!
Seems clear to me - if we don't learn to love our home, we're going to lose it—or at least access to it, as IT will most likely survive us, if not entirely intact. So the primary goal of this website is to engender curiosity about something in nature—anything, whether it's an amoeba or the oceans. Whatever does it for you —get active, if you can, or get interested and support, if you're like me and are not able or inclined to tromp around in the woods.
I am an artist and writer, living off grid, in a strawbale house on the high mesa near Taos, New Mexico. I have four cats, and live amongst a variety of wildlife including, but not limited to: coyote, pronghorn antelope, elk, endless bunnies and jackrabbits (and myriad other rodents), ravens, mountain bluebirds, rattlesnakes, and tarantula.
The cats stay in, everything else stays out.
