What matters to me are questions about how to be here in this world at this time, in a way that sustains and nurtures life against the machines of destruction that surround us. The perennial obsessions of my writing include: redefining who and what is allowed to matter, connecting to the collective fragility and interconnectedness of life on this planet, and the liminal spaces between despair and hope, death and new life, confusion and wonder. I am interested in how meaning and purpose may be shaped and reshaped through art and language.
The purpose is connection from a place of mutual wonder, loss, and possibility; to honor and cultivate impulses toward play, wonder, questioning, and love.
