Our Vision

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.
