Read in January, 1994

Fantastic journal! Good for a lot of things, but what I got out of it (aside from Kyger's sharp observations & witty take on things new age) was it cleared out the cobwebs of hero-worship that I had built up at an early age in regard to Gary Snyder, who comes off as not just human, but quite an asshole. Now, anyone might expect such from an ex-wife, but Kyger tries very hard to be kind in her rendering of him, and even though her predjudices are obvious, the guy treats her like shit. No question.

Also, wonderful travelog.
