In my writing, I seek to offer an account of the texts woven through the landscape around me: texts left by the glaciers, the industries of past inhabitants, passages of creatures over the land. Embedded in these texts are past intentions and processes, which together tell a story of how this place has been and continues to be shaped. It is my work to learn to read the story – work that is done, as Gary Snyder wrote, “on foot and with imagination”. I'm currently working on my first book.
