I am child of Colorful Colorado and a citizen of the world.
I am always searching for truths that we can all live by, which celebrate diversity, respect individuality, and promote real democracy.
I love to play with language, images, and ideas.
I believe that knowledge does set us free, and that the manipulation of knowledge and fear is a large part of what has held humanity back from solving problems that are enormous, but not unsolvable through patient perseverent progress.
I see the universe as infinitely interconnected, incomprehensibly complex, but not in and of itself incomprehensible.
I am currently living with my wonderful, funny, wickedly-smart and dashingly handsome husband, Jamie, in a quaint beach town in Rocha, Uruguay.
My essays and the occasional poem can be found at the following locations:

Julie has produced a delightful - if sometimes whimsical, often disparaging, and always controversial - journey through time and space. For anyone who ever believed that maybe he (or she) was different, that maybe he (or she) had the power to see deeper and clearer, to believe that ideas and remedies exist in some shrouded universe if only we could understand them - this charming and insightful adventure is certain to create a bond. This is not a prototypical travelogue or a tiresome lecture, but a genuinely bright and light-hearted look at time, space, and the over-lapping of ideas. Julie as at once a guide, a historian, a philosopher, and a companion. Whether contemplating the ages-old Indian ruins of Colorado, or the timeless beaches and canyons of the south Pacific, she is able to switch gears easily and connect the eternal dots. Never are you stranded without food for thought. It's a rare commentator who can present her ideas not as opinion, but as part of the universal consciousness.
