My name is Amy Elizabeth Robinson, and I live in the eastern mountains of Sonoma County, California. I often wake to the sound of towhees piping, wind blowing through the firs, or my children asking to snuggle in bed. That much is true.
I am a poet, writer, reader, historian, and many other things. I study Zen and the creative process with Rachel Boughton, Roshi at Flower Mountain Zen, which helps me keep my mind open and my feet on the ground, and to enjoy the ride when they are not.
I was a founding editor of the Pacific Zen Institute’s online magazine of Zen and the arts, Uncertainty Club. Now I just write.
I have several degrees in history, from Princeton and London and Stanford. Then I took a left turn of sorts and ended up with a big, roomy, creative life. Here I am.
Thank you so much for your companionship in this gorgeous, troubled world.
