Learning from the Sea/ Lecture and Workshop at Okeanos Foundation for the Sea

Sharing my two years experience as a wave writer. I looked closely at the connection between forest and sea. The topography of the sea floor. Bodies of water in Japan. The transformation of a whale fall. I read Gilles Deleuze and Robin Wall-Kimmerer, Ursula K. Le Guin and Octavia Butler. I talked with Ama divers and people from the Haida Nation. I took students to the mediterranean to teach them Nature Writing and we met so many whales, that we stopped counting. For two years I kept a Wave Diary through all and everything, jotting down thought, encounters, collecting flotsam and jetsam of an interconnected earth.
