The Green Wolf

My ask box is open. I answer most questions privately, unless it's something that other people may be wondering about AND it's not something personal about the person asking. Feel free to ask me stuff about nature, working with animal parts in art and spirituality, paganism, ethical omnivory, sustainability and environmentalism, and so forth.

Be aware that this Tumblr frequently includes pictures of art made with animal remains, as well as occasional left-leaning political ideologies. Mostly it's nature photography and art (and not just of charismatic megafauna).

Artist, author, naturalist pagan, and wannabe polymath living in the Pacific Northwe(s)t.


I discovered neopaganism in the mid-1990s, and shortly thereafter began my work with animal totems and neoshamanism. Over the years I've wandered through various paths, ranging from Wicca-flavored neopaganism to Chaos magic, and for several few years I created (and followed) Therioshamanism, a post-industrial neo-shamanic path. These days I've relaxed into a more integrated ecopaganism, less about rituals and journeying, and more about the sacred in every moment.

I've also been creating various neopagan ritual tools and other sacred art from hides, bones, beads and other such things since about the same time. And I've written several nonfiction books on totemism, animal magic, and related topics. My newest book is "Plant and Fungus Totems: Connect With Spirits of Field, Forest and Garden"..

A few places to find me, as I'm all over the internet:

This photo of a coyote up in a tree was forwarded to me by Nicole Davros, upland game project leader for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources in Madelia, Minn. The photo was taken by a landowner near the Sandhill Wildlife Area near Babcock, Wis. Carrie Milestone, a Wisconsin DNR wildlife technician offered this comment in her e-mail with the photo: 
“This photo is from a landowner adjacent to Sandhill.  A coyote has learned to climb apple trees and knock frozen apples to the ground.  It is climbing 10-15 feet up.  It then climbs down to eat them.  It did this two days in a row on two different apple trees.  The fence in the back ground is about 5 ft tall.”
