What is WildMind Workshop?
|Upcreek CoOp is designed and maintained
by WildMind Woman and her dog Miss Daisy as a public interest annex to their personal
website. WildMind Woman and Daisy live upcreek from the Skagit River and have a
salmon spawning creek running through their back yard. WildMind Woman gathers
information for her own needs and is sharing it in Upcreek CoOp. Upcreek CoOp will
continue to reflect that bias. Skagit Sharecropper projects are personal projects
usually linked to a friend or particular community interest. They are not likely to
take on a broader "something for everyone" slant, but serendipity happens.
WildMind Woman's energy is limited, so you cannot count on a defined maintenance
schedule. We hope this site is useful to you anyway.
WildMind Woman is a writer and a life explorer who lives in the Skagit Valley of Northwest
Washington state. She had polio as a child of 8, and in 1987 developed post-polio
syndrome that forced her to leave her career as a computer manager. Before entering
the computer profession, she was a teacher and educational researcher. These
websites are the result of WildMind Woman following her tinkering
Miss Daisy Upcreek is half golden retriever, half yellow lab. She is a smiler and a talker
with an amazingly sweet disposition and fewer bad habits than WildMind Woman. Daisy
was probably born about the end of January, 1996, just as WildMind Woman was starting
another new life. Daisy was waiting in that new life, and WildMind Woman found her
in July, 1997, rescued from the humane society. Thank you to her puppy raisers,
whoever they were, and to the Skagitonians who helped and are still helping WildMind Woman
train her. Your dogs can become her pet pen-pals by sending e-mail to email@example.com
calls wild mind the unconscious, but I think the unconscious
is a limiting term. If it is true that we are all interpenetrated and interconnected, then
wild mind includes mountains, rivers, Cadillacs, humidity, plains, emeralds, poverty, old
streets in London, snow and moon. They are part of wild mind. I do not consider even
a dream unconscious. A dream is a being that travels from wild mind...into the conscious
self to wake us up.

WildMind Workshop is the
personal website of WildMind Woman, her dog Miss Daisy and their circles of friends.
Home is the Skagit Valley at the base of the North Cascades in northwestern Washington,
where tulips and blueberries grow by the river, eagles nest, salmon spawn, and blue herons
migrate along with trumpeter swans.
