About

Linda Wilshusen writes this blog in an attempt to reign in ever-present anxiety about where things are headed on the home planet. During the process of sharing information from the sometimes surprising, always amazing, & (occasionally) soothing offerings of science, she frequently stumbles upon ‘ah ha’ moments about our community of human primates, everyday life, & omg!, even herself.

Linda lives and walks around daily in Live Oak, an anachronistic unincorporated urban community in Santa Cruz, California. She worked as a planner for over 35 years, & somehow managed to survive her tenure as executive director of the Santa Cruz County Regional Transportation Commission, 1985-2005. She has a degree in Anthropology from the University of California, Santa Cruz, & especially enjoys discussing planetary orbits & the silly habits of great apes with her grandson Dante. A happily-compulsive (but slightly masochistic) doer, she currently sits on the Santa Cruz City Water Commission representing non-City customers (yes, we had serious flooding last winter after a 5-year drought…welcome to global warming…) & balances things out by being a Trustee of the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History.
