A father of daughters, living in a house of all women, I remain nonetheless what I am: a white, middle-aged male who grew up in a house of boys in Montana.
And since in the last year, I have come to believe that the madness in our society made manifest in the current and most unworthy inhabitant of the White House is directly related in someway to white-male privilege, I have concluded that I need to be reading in a new direction.
Longtime followers of ClimbingSky (and before that MontanaWriter) know that I am not hardwired to want to review books. But I will at least try to mention here now and then what I am reading.

- The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova
- Poems by Amy Lowell
- Nature’s Temples by Joan Maloof
