My friends call me Lish. I write fiction, read, cook, play outside, and work part-time at my community food co-op. Overall, my goals are to gain skills/increase my comfort in the wild and spread the truth about civilization to a large amount of people through allegorical fiction. I live in Mt. Vernon, WA with my husband and cats.
After a mysterious period of psychological transformation in 2014, I became aware of how self-loathing and depressed the mechanisms of civilization had rendered me. Since discovering these ideas, life is actually growing into something beautiful again! I am still learning a lot, trying (with some measure of success, depending on the person) to engage others in discussions re: civilization/rewilding, and tirelessly working on the craft of storytelling. Sometimes I feel overjoyed by the sheer amount of beauty and information available and want to shout everything from the rooftops.
I am excited at the prospect of belonging to a forum of likeminded individuals, but admittedly intimidated, as Iâ€™m still pretty new to the entire problem of civilization. Before this, I did the college/big city/salaried job thing. It was weird, and not in a fun way. I feel like Iâ€™m finally on the right path now, in mind and heart, even if sadly ignorant of my home planet on a physical level. My heart bursts with gratitude for all of you who are involved!
