It’s a dark time of year in the Northern Hemisphere, so to brighten your reading life I’ll let you know about a conversation I had with Gavin Van Horn, Robin Wall Kimmerer, and John Hausdoerffer about their five volume series of books Kinship: Belonging in a World of Relations. The always-amazing online journal Full Stop published it in two parts this month.
We talk about the environmental movement, animism, lichen as skin, and lots of other delicious topics. I spent all summer with the books they co-edited. I talk a bit about the immersive experience it was in our conversation. I highly recommend their project!
In other news, I’m leading an online workshop on writing short form for Writing Workshops starting January 10. I think there are 3 spots left as of this writing. More info here.
Otherwise, I’m doing my usual reading and writing and walking and balking. More soon on all of that in another piece of writing I’ve been working on. News as soon as I’ve got it. Until then, get yourself a bonfire for the longest night of the year. I hope I do!
