A sentence from my journal


A sentence from my daily journal (which is usually only a few sentences anyway): “The same fear, anger, frustration, and pride that is in you is also in me.”

For all of us, there are gaps between our values and our actions. If you are serious about inhabiting these spaces, to understand the lack of integration in your life as one of the central aims of your life, then I call you a fellow contemplative.

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.
