The author at Dartmoor.Alex is a twenty-something poet, graduate student, digital polymath and mystic, as well as a perennial scholar of myth, systems, mycology, complexity, and simplicity.

He loves peasant food, lantern-light, dryads, crazy wisdom, the phrase anima mundi, and this moment. He lives inside a tended grace—a church of ruthless intimacy—with the love of his life, Lucy.

"Simple in means, rich in ends." — Arne Næss
