Had a lovely afternoon just hanging out and chatting with +Cat Bessing  and watching the last few episodes of Veep. So much laughing and giggle-snorting. That show is brilliant.

Interesting.
On 17 August 1585, 107 English colonists set foot for the first time on an island which the local Algonquian speaking tribes called Roanoke, a word they used to refer to the large peculiar and ofte...

Croatoan is the name of a local tribe and island. Before he left for England Governor White asked the colonists to carve a message into a tree if they needed to leave the island, and to add a cross if they were being driven out under duress.

When he returned he found the name of a nearby island carved into a tree, but no cross. In other words, they moved, and left a note about where they had gone as arranged. He didn't go to the other island to check on them because a storm was coming in, and his men insisted on putting back out to sea. He couldn't get back because a war with Spain broke out and nobody returned to look for them for another twenty years. The colony didn't so much mysteriously disappear as it was abandoned.

Interesting. 

I think, right now, my main goal is keeping up with my editorial calendar. :)

Interesting.

I'm curious about SnapChat. Do you have to know the phone number of the person you're chatting with? Or is there some other way of connecting?

"Segregating wilderness from people creates permission to deforest and devalue the landscape where people are allowed to “remain” while falsely defining the remote landscape as “pristine.” Desegregating the wilderness requires not only the laws that forbid discrimination but also the reintegration of nearby wilderness where people live.

"Now largely white organizations and agencies are grappling with the dilemma of a segregated wilderness by working feverishly to get urban people out to remote places—because people will not protect what they have not enjoyed. But what if wilderness zigzagged through areas where urban people live? Then accessing the wilderness in our daily lives could be more tangible than wild shadows cast by memory."

This is one of the concepts I've spent a lot of time rolling around inside my head. When we think about "nature" we almost always imagine it as something separate from ourselves. But I argue that nature is all-encompassing, and until we address our role in nature, we won't be able to protect it.

We had a huge crop of wild purslane in our yard last spring. It's quite tasty. But you have to remember to harvest it in the afternoon. It's bitter in the morning.

Story
Introduction
Um... yeah... its me. I play games, and work in the garden, grow vegetables, dream up delicious recipes, go outside whenever possible, read lots, watch even more TV, and spend many, many (many) hours online. And sometimes, when the stars align, I even blog about these things.

I am a vocal advocate for the power of social media to build vibrant and vital communities, and spend much of my day online for my own projects and favored non-profits, as well as for paying clients. 

My degree is in Environmental Studies, with an emphasis on Outdoor Education and History. My goal is to find a way to combine my many diverse interests into one really awesome life. So far, so good.

Around the web, I am known as "itchbay" and the head princess of the Self-Rescuing Princess Society.
