Adventure Inspiration - Preservation of the World

“The West of which I speak is but another name for the Wild; and what I have been preparing to say is, that in Wildness is the preservation of the World. Every tree sends its fibres forth in search of the Wild. The cities import it at any price. Men plough and sail for it. From the forest and wilderness come the tonics and barks which brace mankind.”
-Henry David Thoreau-

Coaxing Life out of Seeds

My favorite part of summer is my garden. I enjoy coaxing life out of seeds and cooking seasonally with the fruits of my labor. It isn’t always easy gardening at a mile high, but that makes the effort all the more rewarding. The garden has already survived a hail storm, brutal winds, and now heat in the mid to upper nineties. Despite that, I’m pleased with the progress.

My publisher has recently updated all of my book covers. I loved the originals, but the new ones may be even better and I can’t wait to get feedback on the new designs. Please take a moment to scroll down the right-hand side and feel free to leave a comment. Thanks for your continuing interest.

Adventure Inspirations - Winding Trails

May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.

June Days of Significance

It’s not always about quantity. June doesn’t have as many notable dates as some months, but the ones it does have are significant. June 6 is D Day (World War II), June 14 is Flag Day, June 17 is Father’s Day, and the Summer Solstice occurs on June 21, which for a sun-lover is an exciting date. The Summer Solstice is the longest day of the year.
