Thoughts from a life off-grid: 'All the Leavings'

Maybe we don't think about the natural world as much as we should. It's easy to forget about it if you live in a suburban neighborhood.

Laurie Easter has no such neighborhood around her, living off the grid in Southern Oregon. There's time and space to think about nature, as close as it is, and about life and the human condition.

Laurie's first book is a collection of essays on these subjects and more; it is called All The Leavings.

We pick over the leavings in a chat with the author.
