About Me

I’m Natty. I’m currently in New York at Sarah Lawrence College studying women’s history. I am from the Pacific Northwest. Being out here reminds me how special and important it is that i have a sense of place, of home, in the high desert and green valley of Oregon. This blog has served as a space in which i can share my thoughts, my research, my joys, and my struggles with friends and, i guess, unknowns. I hope these writings become both useful and contested for people interested in the present and past implications of feminism, anarchism, love, nature, etc…. I love comments so please tell me what you think! This blog is a space for thoughts in progress, for ideas to be tested, contested, reworked, or affirmed.

  1. Hi Natty,

    I really like your blog. Way to go!
    I’m a student at Acadia university in Wolfville, Nova Scotia studying Sociology and Gender & Feminism. I’m looking for some good reads on anti-assimilationist politics/theory/ ideas. Any suggestions? Looking forward, Tracy

  2. Hi Tracy,
    Thanks for leaving me a note! You are the first person to contact me about my blog who is not friend or family. What in particular are you interested in? Send me an email and we’ll go into more depth. My email address is blackberryblossoms@gmail.com.
    I’m looking forward to connecting with you!

  3. i came across your web page while looking for images of forest. I just wanted to say hi. You seem very awesome. At first, I thought you might be a dj from sf who also calls herself polywog. but then i realized that that was not the case and then i was taken back to grammar school days of catching tadpoles (and returning them) from a creek. again, just wanted to say hello. i’m in san francisco presently.

  4. Hi — I’m doing some sort of similar research for an MA on the development of anarchist thought/movement culture in the nineteenth and early 20th century, and am especially looking at the way free love, etc. became a central feature of American anarchism during this time. If you ever want to chat or exchange research material and ideas, let me know.

  5. Hey Natty–
    We knew each other once upon a time in the desert, under different names. Looks like we’re doing similar work, now, here on the other side of it.
    I’d love to know more about your radical writer’s project–and I’d love to send you a copy of my own org’s spoken-word CD as soon as it’s out.
    Drop me a line sometime? We can whup oppression in tandem for old times’ sake.

  6. Hello, I just read thru and commented on your APEX article only to realize when I clicked on your ‘about me’ page that I thought you were somebody else.

    Or maybe I’m just confused?

    I’d really like to work on a non-male oriented greatest forest defeders web site with you and others… Of course at this point I don’t even know who you are? I did a search on Polywog and found Micah on myspace, maybe that’s the guy I talked to? I’m confused… Let me know what’s up?

    Be well, Deane

  7. Hi Natty, beautiful sunday.
    I really loved the talk and discussion last night at Blue stockings.
    Fascinating to see all the people siiting to each other , having different views on relationship and love, religion, politics.
    I want to know more about polyamory and will take some time to read your blog.
    Called my husband , James after the discussion and share some thoughts and my happiness about the talk and meeting great people, he was happy and wished he was among us.
    For another time.
    Hope for more discussions and more love.
    xxo, katia

  8. Hey Natty-
    I read this article today and thought you might enjoy it. It’s cute. I realized I don’t have any of your contact information. That’s why I’m writing on your blog. Hope your workshops went well.
