On a cold Saturday morning in the wilds of Danby, our Primitive Pursuits trainers showed us some of the mysteries of cooking over slow-burning coals. This tasty dish is an onion, hollowed out to hold an egg (both hen and duck eggs were available). They baked together over a slow coals campfire, yielding a tender and luscious hot camp breakfast. The accompanying bagel was grilled by placing it face down in the coals. Mmmm.
I am a writer, story-teller and networker. And a mom. I have a Ph.D. in geography, focused on water and food resources, and have worked as college teacher, magazine and book editor, public educator, and activist in Ohio, Kentucky and NY State, where I presently reside. I am employed as steward/executive director of a nonprofit organization that works to educate about and protect Cayuga Lake, at the center of NY State's incomparable Finger Lakes.region. I live in Dryden NY and am a proud member of DRAC (Dryden Resources Awareness Coalition), leading the way in keeping fracking and gas drilling out of our town and state. I am available professionally for work as writer, editor and organizer.
