Westwood Lake Chronicles

04 Jan

WestwoodLakeTwenty-five years ago they bought a homestead, in the middle of Vancouver Island, on the water’s edge. There are still reflections off the small lake at the foot of Mount Benson – of gardens and vineyards and woodland encounters.
.
Westwood Lake Chronicles is a “dreamscape” diary, a backyard inventory of life and death in paradise, and the desperate pressures that threaten its existence.
.
Lawrence Winkler has written an anthem to living deliberately with nature, and the virtues of simplicity, self-sufficiency, solitude, and silence. Find refuge.
.
Author’s Bio
Westwood Lake Chronicles is one of four books by Lawrence Winkler, who is an ancient physician and a traveler, a phenomenologist, a mushroom forager, and an amateur naturalist. As a young man, he hitch-hiked around the world, for five trans-formative years.

.
His middle age is morphing from medicine to manuscript. He has a passion for habitat protection, including the (hopefully) final repairs on a leaky roof. Westwood Lake Chronicles was his first book.
He lives on Vancouver Island with Robyn and Shiva, tending their garden and vineyard, and dreams.
