Welcome to West By Northwest online magazine,
an independent, progressive, bimonthly journal of rural and city life, ecology, arts
and letters from a Northwest perspective. We are happy to welcome some new contributors,
especially Mike Connelly, a fine writer from where the Eastern Cascades' mountain pines meets high
desert and inland marshes, the areas we call the other Oregons, where issues about
water have become a matter of life and death.
We are grateful to our regular contributors who have helped make West By Northwest.org
a venue for the "down-to-earth" talents in our own backyards. Many of our
best pieces have been contributed by people who have everyday jobs, like farming,
teaching, parenting, gardening, speech therapy, cutting hair, administering schools,
and ministering to people, installing utilities, selling houses, doctoring people
and animals, grooming creatures, making jewelry, making machines, machine tools,
repairing cars, painting pictures, making pottery, and computer programming. "Ordinary"
people who make an extraordinary difference, West By Northwest.org salutes you! Thank
you all. And we are grateful to our growing community of readers who make it all
worthwhile and possible.
