Nature and language are at the core of who I am, so, after a few false starts, I am embarking on a career in environmental journalism. I've also had some essays and poems published, and hope to take a stab at fiction next.
Though happily in awe of life, I'm not immune to occasional fits of darkness--but that's life really. We accept the darkness and the light both.
I am a gracefully (I hope) aging punk rocker and an aspiring buddhist. I ride my bike everywhere, even in winter, and have 2 pet birds I allow to chew holes in my possessions.
There's so much to love about life and humankind. I'm learning that what motivates me is a desire for connection--to nature, to art, to communities, to friends, to myself.
So I'd like to get out and do fun things, and if something deeper develops, that would be perfect. Cycling, kayaking, poetry readings, movies, spicy food--these are all things I like to do. But let me know what you want to do! I don't feel everyone in my life has to have the same interests as me.
