About Angela Long

Angela Long is the author of Observations off the Grid.

Angela Long had never heard of “off-the-grid” until she found herself living there. In a cedar-log cabin on a remote archipelago, she collects rainwater and fuels her laptop with windpower. Here, a collection of poems has emerged – the product of twenty years spent wandering through different countries and cultures. From Chicacao to Varanasi, Milan to Haida Gwaii, Observations from Off-the-Grid explores life beyond conventional demarcations. Here reader meets author as English teacher in war-torn Guatemala, meditation student in India. The collection gives voice to victims of torture, beggars, the homeless. It gives voice to the heartache of a Sunday afternoon. With its simple language and universal insights, this is a collection that welcomes everyone.  – Goodreads.com

Botany Question!

Check it out! I just found the coolest botany site. I uploaded ^ this photo and they identified my plant. How awesome is that? So now I’m going to do like I promised and share their site all over because I have been bugging everyone about this plant! 😀

So this is the site:
https://gobotany.newenglandwild.org/plantshare/questions/all/2017/#q1342

And this is what they said:

Answer
Dear jazztizz, your plant looks like a species of Ampelopsis (peppervine). In our part of the world, Amur peppervine (Ampelopsis glandulosa) is the most common species with lobed leaves. Best wishes.
