Why subscribe?

Because words intrigue you. You may especially enjoy the ones arranged into poems. Maybe you're looking for encouragement to write words of your own or have someone gently edit some you’ve already written?

Because the idea that oak trees and aardvarks are part of your family tree feels right. Maybe that feeling inspires you to create word art?

Because I’ve been noticing wild vocabulary and learning from ecosystems for over twenty years. There’s always a new story to share. Maybe you’d like to hear one, or maybe you have stories to share, too?

What to expect...

A quietly restorative missive will arrive every two weeks.

I don’t do shouty, or full-speed-ahead. I do insightful, thought-provoking, sometimes gently humorous. Sometimes I talk about what it’s like being a woman of deepening years these days.

(When I use the word “woman” I mean adult cis and trans women as well as non-binary people who are comfortable in a space that centers the experience of women—with thanks to Anna Sansom for this language.)

I hope you join us.
