The Backcountry Journal


New Reader/Follower/Bookmark Alert, especially for those of you with a penchant for the outdoors:

Editor Ben Smith was kind enough to include my essay "Winter, Walking" in the early stages of The Backcountry Journal, a wonderful online composite of place-inspired words and images. There's great stuff here: hiking, fishing, hunting, exploration. Do hope you check it out. And hope you're enjoying the snow!

  3. Divinely good, Emily! And filled me with remorse for not having stepped out fully into our first snow here...at least I got to go along with you.

  8. Thanks, Bill. I thought of you when I came across The Backcountry Journal. They might like some of your work, too.

    And also, for you readers-of-ages-ago, an earlier draft of "Winter, Walking" did appear on this blog as "Dreaming" last November. Repurposing words: a good idea, I think, just like repurposing solid old wood. (Or something.) :)

  10. Wonderful to see all the attention your lovely words are receiving, Emily! I'm coming to this late as I always forget to check my subscriptions in Google reader, so I'm grateful if there is an email subscription option as well. Having your thoughts and words drop into the inbox will be a far more delightful way to begin the day. And as it's late here, I'm savouring 'Winter, Walking' for tomorrow morning when frost will have glazed the garden. Hope all is well with you, and I'm delighted to see so many talking about your essay. Best wishes from here...
