The view from my backyard


This panoramic was taken only a few blocks from my new residence. The sunsets here in Santa Monica are quite remarkable. This particular evening, Sunday, the sky line displays various shades of blue.

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.

    Thanks Jess. Its like living at a favorite vacation destination. Very weird.

    I love you and hope you come visit soon! We will have to get that video chat in that we’ve been trying to do for the last month or so. =)


Consider this post an invitation, an invitation to comment and collaborate, in an open-ended sort of way, so please share your...whatever it is that's on your mind: thoughts, ideas, greetings, angst/irritation, inspiration, confusion, query, rant, salutation, data/research, meme, epigram, exposition or epiphany -- because I'm all about the synergy and solidarity. ~ JE
