About Julie R Butler

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:
