Writer & Traveler Jedidiah Jenkins

Last week we got to host writer and traveler Jedidiah Jenkins. He was looking for an escape to the peace and quiet of the mountains to spend a few days working on his first book. If you follow along on his instagram you will see that he is nothing short of poetic, painting pictures with his words. 

"Writing retreat in Big Bear. Boulders and pine trees and dive bars and cold nights by the fire. Hammering out essays on family, nature, belonging, travel." -Jedidiah Jenkins

"I want a cottage on a boulder mountain. A bed and a quilt and an old stove with a tea kettle on it. A telescope and a chart of constellations. Books everywhere. The smell of books. Having kind and measured opinions about all that the world is up to. Removed from the world but also in it, caring about it and for it. Being old and thoughtful with a pipe and a few squirrels that trust me. A raven would be even better. And friends stopping in. Nieces and nephews making the trek to the mountain for a night of stories and some whiskey in their Dr. Pepper. I'll pour it and say 'this never happened.'" - Jedidiah Jenkins
