Holy Desire


“Saint Gregory declares that all holy desire is heightened with the delay of fulfillment and desire which fades with delay was never holy desire at all…

“Saint Augustine explains what I mean by holy desire when he says that the entire life of a good Christian is nothing less than holy desire.” From The Cloud of Unknowing (Anonymous)

Writer. In the summers, I live and work in the incredible state of Alaska, in the bush community of McCarthy, as the Executive Director of the Wrangell Mountain Center. When not in McCarthy, you'll typically find me in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California, writing and working with local activists. My primary writing project right now is a novel set in remote bush Alaska, of the magical realism genre wherein an earnest and independent young woman finds a mysterious radio belonging to her grandmother, a device that has paranormal bandwidth and a disturbing ability to mess with one's mental stability.

    This picture is of a tree in the median on my street here in Santa Monica, CA, my new home. Kind of gnarly, huh?
