OK, I wasn't quite right about that. First I have to get the 2 advance copies, PAY THEM, and THEN they ship. At the moment I'm clearing space in my storeroom, arranging for someone to come and help bring the boxes of books into the house when they DO arrive, and putting some attention on getting all these stained glass supplies sold. eBay wouldn't let me post such a large amount, since I'm an untried vendor, so I'm going to put ads in the Whole Earth Times, and some selected newspapers from large cities that are no more than 12 hours away. I mean, when I was first buying supplies, I used to drive 21 hours to get to the place that sold them, so surely there's somebody out there who will be interested in this. If anyone's reading this who would be interested in buying a WHOLE LOT of glass supplies, here's the ad that's listed in the eBay classifieds for Albuquerque, NM: http://albuquerque.ebayclassifieds.com/arts-crafts/tres-piedras/stained-glass-supplies-spectrum-uroboros-bullseye-kokomo-solder/?ad=19188576
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.
