[ profile] tru2myart is having a friending frenzy over at her place. She is an amazing woman; advice from this doctor is to go pay her a visit and check out all the amazing folks she knows.

I recently read Ecotopia and Ecotopia Emerging. I am finishing up re-reading The Fifth Sacred Thing. Anyone have suggestions that have the sort of feel of these books or much of S. Tepper's work? Evidently what I am looking for is Ecotopian or Ecofeminism fiction. To help with suggestions, I like books that are more about the characters and the details than grand plot lines (I hope that makes sense).

Another category of books that would interest me is even harder to explain -- imagine a cross between Walden and the kinds of letters that women used to write to family and friends filled with the details of daily life (what was blooming, the weather, recipes, what they were harvesting from the garden, etc) and the field notes of an anthropologist observing a society that is much less technologically based than the modern U.S. In other words a combination of science, sociology, philosophy, cooking, nature guide all told in a personal manner. If that makes sense to you; you deserve many gold stars for brilliance.

Suggestions for other kinds of books are always welcome.

Dear students,

You have no right to be angry and throw a fit when you show up to take a make up exam between semesters and I am not there. Emailing me at 9 p.m. one evening and showing up to take said exam at 9 a.m. does not constitute a mutually agreed upon time when I have not even opened said email yet. I am sorry you have driven an hour and gas prices are high but NOT MY FAULT. You were supposed to take this exam to remove the Incomplete back in January.

No Love
