Author Blogs

I write two blogs, both of which support your quest to live a simple life. They are a reprieve from the societal attitude that says Nature can be sacrified to humankind’s whim.

There is no talk about saving the world, only discussion of how the Earth can save us.


Back to Basics Blog

For six years, my Back to Basics blog has featured thought-provoking essays on conservation- and Nature-related topics. I share thoughts that weigh heavy on my mind or challenge popular opinion, all in an attempt to get a deeper conversation started.
