Well, my sister site http://www.secret-voices.com is finally up and running. I spent some time on it early last week, as the printing process is happening more quickly than I had expected. Then I wrote a letter/email to my family and friends, asking everyone to make pre-orders on the book. My funds are very tight, and since my computer's motherboard failed, and I had to buy a new computer, the funds are even tighter. So, to the one or two of you out there who read this: if you would like to see a sample of the books content, go to the address. Then, if you are of a mind, order a copy. Just email me about it. firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
