I can't begin to tell you how much I enjoy your writing, this series and A Fall in Time. I haven't had a chance to dive into your fiction yet, but soon. Since discovering them, I've been revitalized. If I don't get to spend an hour in the woods each day, I fret. And I can't believe all the things I've discovered that were there the whole time.

There are a lot of excellent writers on Substack, and I'd love to support them all, but my finances won't stretch that far. I'm delighted to support you, though, and hope lots of people take advantage of your subscription offer.

I want to take part in this. Can you explain a little more about what's involved, how you see us participating?

Whoop whoop, mapping. I'm in! Can't wait to see how this unfolds. Of course, as someone who also maps and has a substack about maps (albeit art maps), I'd love to collaborate, so I'd like to know a little more about what you mean when you say "look through the lens of our ancestors" to help me think about what I could offer. Let me know! šŸ˜Š

I've always done that to some extent, but more so since you inspired me. I'm very lucky, in that water is easily found (a creek winds all through the park where I walk). The child in me has always looked for hidden places to make a "fort" (though my Brit hubby tells me that's not a European thing) and I've found a lot of them. There are lots of fallen trees that could be used to make something like your earth shelter, though it isn't allowed in the park. That doesn't prevent me from seeing the possibilities. It makes me curious, though, about your shelter. Was that in a park area or someone's private property? Here, everything falls into one category or the other. There are no spaces free to claim, and parks are heavily regulated.

I'm intrigued, and interested! I absolutely need to devote more time to local exploration outside of my daily commute.
