In 1974, I moved with my parents from Berkeley to Greenfield Ranch, a somewhat accidental, semi-intentional, homesteading back-to-the-land community that has been and keeps going through lots of changes. This experience was formative for me, and has provided me with a specific lens through which I view the world.
"Coming to know oneself as embedded within interpersonal and intersubjective networks that encompass not only the human realms but the worlds of other critters, beings, and energies of the land is a deep and ongoing journey. It takes strength of heart and great capacities for forgiveness, self-reflection, respect, and communication.
I am always learning."
