About

photo by Russell White. Burketown, Australia 2009.

It all began in 2009 with clouds. I was received a Watson Fellowship to spend one year traveling around the world exploring how unusual clouds affect the people that live beneath them.  I traveled to Australia to see the morning glory cloud, to Sweden to see nacreous clouds (my favorite clouds), and also to Iceland, New Zealand, Norway, and Scotland. If you're looking for a good place to start, try here.  From that journey, I just haven't put the pen (or camera) down. This blog is about making the world a more interesting place. Thanks for stopping by.

My name is Laura. I've always been intrigued by the narratives of places. I love the wildness of the South and its many strains of music. I'm curious about how our experiences with wonder and beauty influence how we live. My home is in Sharpsburg, Georgia, but I now live in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. When I'm not working, I fill my time with fiddle music, old ballads, and long romps on cracked country roads.
