About Holly

I live in a small town in the Sierra Nevada foothills a couple of hours east of the Bay Area. My sweetie Conal Elliott and I live on twenty acres in a hillside house overlooking a lovely forested canyon with a creek. Our place is about three miles from town up a skinny dirt road. The area is known as Murray Creek. Remote? Mm-hmm, a bit. The electrical line terminates at our panel; beyond us, no electricity and no phones! Our house at night is like a ship on the vast, dark ocean, floating in utter darkness. Conal’s mom, Ann, lives on the sixty acre family property next door. The air is clear, the oaks wonderfully old and twisted, the weather hot in summer and cool and wet in winter. Deer stroll by daily. A possum raided the kitchen the other day. There are a ridiculous number of stars visible at night–at least, when the moon isn’t hogging the show. It’s pretty darn cool place to be. I am interested in the evolution of consciousness in human beings, in art, music, cars, vegetarian/veganism, chainsaws, language, ballroom dancing, salsa dance, learning, social and cultural evolution, vegetarian cooking, technology, singing, country life, blogging, animals (especially horses and cats), relationships, emotions, spirituality… so much to think and write about. I’m also interested in finding out what it’s like to live in the country, which is lucky, since I live in the country. I’ve started this blog in order to work out some thoughts, share pictures, and point out fun stuff I find on the web. I think. We’ll see what actually pans out…

    Hi Holly,

    I just saw this picture of a mime in Bruges and thought of your experience, the one you blogged about in “Not Bronze”:

    Hope all is good with you guys; say “hi” to Conal for me.
