Climate Change Residency at PLAYA
My cabin for the month of July.
Here's a clue.
I'm enjoying my July residency at PLAYA working on my third book of eco-poems Chewaucan Wars. According to Flyfisher's Guide to Oregon, Chewaucan "is a Native American name meaning 'place of the potato.'" This book is about Oregon and the coming resource wars due to habitat loss. I'm grateful for the scenic beauty of the area, fine company, and exchange of ideas. The drive here took me past the Deschutes River and many smaller rivers that were too tempting to pass up.
