the power of stories
The voice of nature speaks from the enchanted landscape and whispers through the rising trees. We are those who listen and weave the unseen into the seen. We are the ones writing the powerful story of the future. As Joan Didion says, I write to understand who I am and what I think. I write to explore, to imagine and to invent new worlds. It is the most profound path os discovery I could ever have dreamed to embark upon. Thank you for journeying with me. ~Eila.

THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RIVER: STORIES OF WOMEN, WATER AND THE WORLD IS A DEEP SEARCHING INTO THE WAYS WE BECOME DAMMED AND HOW WE RECOVER FLUIDITY. IT IS A JOURNEY THROUGH MEMORY AND TIME, PERSONAL AND SHARED LANDSCAPES TO DISCOVER THE SOURCE, THE FLOW AND THE DELTAS OF WOMEN AND WATER.
Rooted in rivers, inspired by wetlands, sources and tributaries, this book weaves its path between the banks of memory and story, from Florida to Kyoto, storm-ravaged New Orleans to London, via San Francisco and across Ghana. We navigate through flood and drought to confront the place of wildness in the age of technology.
