About the Book
"Haiku symbolize the impermenance and momentary nature of life ... This literarary symbology creates visceral spaces where we can catch glimpses at our relationship to nature and time" From 2013-16 I began spending extended periods of time out in the backcountry of Oregon's Cascade Mountain Range. Through (haiku, tanak, & haiga) poetry and imagery this book was chronicles my life "Up the Mtn", in a 10x20 hovel. During this period Oregon's forests became my studio. A studio where nature imbued my creative process and life "Up the Mtn".
