The folks at Longform podcast interviewed me in late August, soon after I completed the Dobie Paisano fellowship and after six months on the Dobie ranch in Texas. Ranch life strips away any pomp and frivolous a person may have. Lose water for four days and haul water from the creek is not just inconvenient, it’s an opportunity to closely observe yourself and your mindset.
All of this to say,
host Evan Ratliff caught me post-ranch and a bit raw. Here are some thoughts about facts versus truth, joy and humanity against despair ,mixed in with some insights about writing gleaned from barroom restrooms.
