I love the Great Basin. As often as I have left I have come back. I have great faith in the in the power of landscape to spark imagination and cure the damage modernity has wrought on the human psyche. I strive to attune myself to rhythm whether on the dance floor or in a spring morning canyon bottom rocking to a roaming Sierra stream. And I love to bicycle, visit my (mostly) biking blog La Pedaleada and my newest blog Memory Landscaping.
