Living on Glacial Time and NAR

Check out the feature about my trip to the almost-glacier in the current books/essays issue of High Country News.

The process of writing/editing the piece with the help of HCN editor Jodi Peterson was wicked fast by the literary publishing standards (truly glacier-paced) I'm used to, and utterly enjoyable.

Speaking of literary publishing: I also have an essay ("Caucus") in the current issue of the venerable journal North American Review. Only problem is, it's apparently too venerable to have an active website. So, again, I hope anybody who's interested can chase down a hard copy.

The blue September sky in Stehekin is to die for. If I get my work done today -- hell, even if I don't -- I'm going windsurfing on the lake.
