Well, I am adding another site, but the intent is to de-clutter access to my writings. Before now if someone wanted to find my novels, short stories, or memoir; they had to look for them on one of seven individual sites!
I won’t be taking those down just yet, but I do hope that people interested in my writing will follow me on this site.
I recently came across this post, Belief is a kind of blindness; and “dialogue” about your message with “diverse” people may foster new insight.
“The fact is, we carefully edit our reality, searching for evidence that confirms what we already believe. Although we pretend we’re empiricists — our views dictated by nothing but the facts — we’re actually blinkered, especially when it comes to information that contradicts our theories. The problem with science, then, isn’t that most experiments fail — it’s that most failures are ignored.“
Dark Mountain Issue 2 is one of the most unique environmental books out there – part dystopian poetry along the lines of Cormac McCarthy’s The Road; part post-apocalyptic River Cottage with the rest being a slice of philosophy that only ever becomes clear once the reader immerses themselves in the works within. The contributions are consistently of a high standard, no matter what the form. In fact, it’s worth reading for the sheer variety of literary reaction to the potential ending of our cultural systems as much as to see what the movement is about. As with many natural systems; the whole provides far more to think about than the sum of the individual elements.
