Who are the readers united by reading West by Northwest? We see you as seekers
of truth and joy, hope and dynamic democracy. You believe that life and love are
essential. You love to explore the world of ideas and places in person and in your
armchair. You care passionately about the fate of humanity as well as the planet's.
You support good causes as best you can. You know we must find peace and justice
for all beings, especially we humans who have such a profound effect upon this world
(and maybe others) and each other. You seek a wide community of committed world citizens
who work in their own "back yards" to make a difference. You read West
by Northwest because you know that from the particular to the
universal is a matter of a few degrees of the compass.
Our range of emphasis corresponds to the historic bio-region of the Pacific Northwest
which stretches from the coast of Big Sur, California to Southern Alaska and points
in-between. This is the area of the world we shall look at through the lens of our
own 'observatory' based in Spencer Creek Valley, Oregon. Spencer Creek Valley is
not on the maps but is a very real place whose people face many of the issues of
people all over the world including the challenge of change and preservation.
To give voice to "ordinary" people .
To build local and world wide community through the tools of Internet technology.
To remember our past and rethink our future.
To celebrate our here and now.
