Winner of the Silver Medal

Posted on Jun 5, 2010

The Salmon in the SpringThe Salmon in the SpringIt is with great pleasure that I inform you that The Salmon in the Spring is now the recipient of the silver medal for the 2010 Independent Publisher Book Awards (IPPY) in the mind-body-spirit category.  No doubt this will spell great things for the future.

Additionally, UK readers now have the option of ordering The Salmon in the Spring from the Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids.  Shipping internationally is quite expensive so I hope that this will alleviate that issue.  Of course, if you prefer to buy directly from the author that option is still available.

Finally, I have added several new essays to the website:

Re-inhabiting the Earth (2010)
An examination of five ecological powerssuccession, decomposition, open systems, habitats, and nichesand the way in which they can be expressed through humans as a form of participation in the ecosystem.

What Use Are Poets in Times of Need? (2010)
A short talk presented at the 2010 Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness Graduate Symposium at the California Institute of Integral Studies, exploring the ecological dynamics of poetry and social transformation.

Preserving Truth (2009)
This essay explores the concepts of dán, geis, and the kingship traditions of ancient Ireland within an ecological context, deriving from them an Irish cosmological perspective on Earth jurisprudence and the maintenance of right relationship with the ecosystem.
