After traveling by trailer and truck for a few months, environmental journalist Matt Weiser and I were charmed by Ely. We settled in a little house with a wood stove and a view of the mountains beside the Nevada Northern tracks. I’m a poet and writer. I also write and edit for others, and teach yoga.
In Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, I opened Simple, Joyful Yoga, an in-home studio. In Washington, D.C. and Sacramento, Calif., I taught corporate, studio and private lessons for people of all ages and levels.
I love to be outside. Interacting with trees is as simple as walking beneath them with full attention, a form of forest bathing. In Stay Calm and Keep Still, a birder and a Buddhist describe finding stillness in places. A brief encounter changes perspective in the poem American River. I created Three Weeks Before Summer as a model for writing your own observational poems.
