New issue will be online June 6, 2001
Northwest online magazine, a progressive, bimonthly journal
of rural and city life, ecology, arts and letters from a Northwest perspective. Thanks
to the growing e-community of readers and contributors West By Northwest is becoming
Late Spring, the season of storms and blue skies tumbling over the valleys and mountains
of the Pacific Northwest, is here and we are praying for more rain. Whoever thought
that the two and four web-footed and finned friends would be needing more rain in
this region at this time of year! Many people are convinced that we are experiencing
the effects of global warming -- changes that will influence our lives and climates
for centuries to come. The decisions policy makers will implement may make the difference
between wise coping and a headlong fall into an ecological emergency on an unprecedented
scale. We hope the 'zine is becoming a source of information and inspiration for
transformation necessary to survive and thrive inside the context of nature and wiser
technology, not against nature.

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.
