The Journey into Anazasi Country

The most rewarding moments when building the story of Julian Reicherts world being turned upside down was living the setting.  In the real world, my senses are fine-tuned into the natural world around me.  I see not just the trees, but how they stand in the soil and appear looking up into the sky and the health of the leaves.  Their place in the local terrain including proximity to water including streams, whether the land is level or rolling or steep mountains and canyons.  The trip into the slick rock canyons and mystic arroyos where the spirits of the Anazasi live was euphoric.  It was euphoric because I had, at a cursory level, visited, hiked, explored and marveled at the formations of the great southwest and in particular, the dramatic views in and around the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument.  The formations are awe-inspiring and consoling.  Living and writing a story in this setting wal fulfilling, to say the least
