A year ago today I was shipping out from a tiny island on what felt like the edge of the world.  It changed my life and a day doesn’t go by that I don’t think about it, long for it, feel its pull.

Last summer, I spent a few week business residency  for Life on Mars Good...


A little over a month ago, I found myself two hours from Trondheim, Norway, on the fishing island of Hitra. My friends Camilla and Monica had brought me to Monica's family's new home, perched at the edge of a hilltop overlooking the fjord, where we were preparing for t...
