I’m late getting this up, but I have an essay, “Dry Season“–all about landscape, choice, and generations–in the October issue of The Sun. You can only read a selection online, but if you don’t subscribe to The Sun, well, you should.

Wow. My essay “Out West,” orginally in Orion last fall, has just been nominated for a National Magazine Award (also known as an “Ellie”). And I’m up against Garrison Keillor, Mitch Albom, and Michael Pollan!
