Moonlight, no flash

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.

  1. Very cool. Thanx for sharing (Indiana Jones!). You get all the adventures, and I watch the movie.

    Not to compare, because no doubt both are beautiful… but I have never visited Alaska and cannot speak to that. Nevertheless, your picture and caption remind me of a time I visited Mesa Verde, just outside my hometown, long ago at night after a fresh snow and under the light of a full moon. I was transported.

    I have had a few such experiences – sometimes the time of day, even the day of the month, even of the year plays a significant role. I think of sunset at Yarnell, AZ, of moonlight at Zion National park.

    I wonder if you know the story about how the Sun Dagger was discovered at Chaco Canyon New Mexico. I am sure the story has aired on PBS and such, but I used to live near there and saw documentaries about in in other venues. For you and your readers, here is a link to get a search started if interested:

    Thanx for sharing yours. I love it.

    God bless…
