Lost in the Light

By Tara Kramer   |   Nov 4, 2016 November 4, 2016

I’m starting to measure time as it’s marked by the ice caps. Two months here, three months there, then fall in Montana, or spring, or a month of summer, and then again to the Flat White. I scatter through the seasons and across hemispheres, losing myself in the months, the landscape,… Read More

The Not So Obvious

I was on my first snorkel, on the lookout for humpback whales near Tonga, when a monstrous creature slowly rose through the murky water from the depths of the ocean. She was close enough that I could see her eye studying me. I was afraid and, while holding her gaze,… Read More

Who’s Nick?
