Hi, I'm Andy Engelson, a writer and editor who lived in Hanoi for five years and now lives in Geneva Switzerland. This blog is no longer active, but you can find more of my writing at The Lost Salt Atlas. I'm currently working on a historical novel set in the Northwest United States during World War II. In a former life, I edited Washington Trails magazine. I like to hike, travel, and play with my family.
Get up, sweet slug-a-bed, and see The dew bespangling herb and tree. . . Come, let us go while we are in our prime; And take the harmless folly of the time. — Robert Herrick, “Corinna’s Gone A-Maying”
