Listening to the Long SongBy Andrea on March 09, 2017 — Leave a comment
Last year, I submitted an essay to the marvellous on-line magazine, Dark Matter/Women Witnessing. If you’re not aware of this free e-zine, I encourage you to check it out! It is a venue for women writers to share their experiences and passions about the state of the natural world. The theme that attracted me to write was ‘Kinship’, something that broadly defines my love affair with nature. Working with the editor, Lise Weil, was a wonderful experience; she helped me hone the many threads and large themes I’ve been exploring for years.
Listening for the Long Song is a hefty essay covering my listening to plants, to the stones of Georgian Bay, the spirit of a whale, and my bladder (not necessarily in that order!)
As well as a flip-book version of the e-zine, here’s the PDF version of the last issue.
