Terry Tempest Williams
Terry Tempest Williams (born September 8, 1955), is an American author, naturalist, and environmental activist. Born in Salt Lake City, Utah, the desert landscape she was raised in has significantly influenced her writing, much of which concerns or is set in the deserts of the American West. Her works touch on a variety of issues, including issues of ecology and natural preservation, feminism, health/cancer issues, and the Mormon culture.
Andrea Lewis was a friend of mine. She passed away on November 15, 2009, from a heart attack. The last time we were together was for The Progressive’s 100th birthday party in the spring. We shared a meal, a very long meal, the kind where time and space expand in the landscape of deep sharing.
