The Spit

A nice view of the fishing island, from across “the spit.” The spit is a bridge of gravel connecting the island to the mainland. During low tides, you can walk across the spit and be on the mainland of Kodiak island. During high tide, however, the spit is covered with water, boats and skiffs can pass over it. This picture is from low tide.

Writer. In the summers, I live and work in the incredible state of Alaska, in the bush community of McCarthy; I pass the winters in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California. I'm working on a memoir-based nonfiction book on the American Dream. I blog, quite frequently, and I also have a novel in process, set in Alaska.

  1. The Spit as metaphor: sometimes we are isolated, sometimes connected; the tide comes in and it goes out again. There’s probably even a haiku here if we worked on it a little.
