...over on Select Hops, a collaborative blog project Gerald Hill and I started back in 2008. It has proved generative over the years. The hops are beginnings, much of the material eventually finding its way into our respective books in one form or another. The blog has a new look to go with this terrible fire season. If you look closely you'll see a hint of smoke behind the posts. The background image, from a not so distant time, is by me and was taken very close to home. Here it is in full.
