Most of the thoughts on this site were conceived in the woods,

or at least out of doors, scribbled into a little brown journal that I carry almost everywhere I go. I hunt and gather, then edit and revise, and sometimes even publish.

Why do I write?

Writing helps me sort my thoughts, put them in a more coherent form than ever occurs in conversation.

To friends I say read this and get to know me. Others I invite to browse around and see if there's something of meaning for you. If you enjoy yourself, I hope you will return.
