About This Site

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 This blog is no longer active, but you can find more of my writing at The Lost Salt Atlas.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 cool dating sites family.


Master Fengxue was asked by a monk, “Speech and silence involve alienation and vagueness; how does one get through without transgression?”
Fengxue said, “I always remember south of the lake in springtime, the hundred flowers fragrant where the partridges call.”
