Writing and working for a spiritual, political, and cultural revolution
Snow Makes Mountain
All my life false and real, right and wrong tangled. Playing with the moon, ridiculing the wind, listening to birds…. Many years wasted seeing the mountain covered with snow. This winter I suddenly realize snow makes mountain.
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.
