A fascinating agroecological context

Writing at Guapamacátaro was both a retreat from and immersion into the subject of my work… The quiet hacienda helped, as did long walks through fields and along rivers.

I explored lots of different ideas without feeling pressured to produce something, and that ended up being very productive for me… it really let me flush out and have confidence in some new ideas.
