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. Th watch is blog is no longer active, but you can find more of my writing at The Lost Salt Atlas.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.

Quotable

There is for every man some one scene, some one adventure, some one picture that is the image of his secret life, for wisdom first speaks in images, and this one image, if he would but brood over it his lifelong, would lead his soul, disentangled from unmeaning circumstance and the ebb and flow of the world, into that far household where the undying gods await all whose souls have become simple as flame, whose bodies have become quiet as an agate lamp. — W. B. Yeats, “The Philosophy of Shelley’s Poetry”
