Coyote Jones

  1. Wolf

    Something that reminds me of wolf, that feels wolfy to me, is the wandering. Setting out into the unknown and blazing your own trail whether you want to or not. The wide-awake feeling of focusing all senses and all memories on the perilous navigation of an unfamiliar terrain. Seeking a familiar voice. Carrying the loneliness with stoicism. Living a storied life whose story will never be told. Whose life is carried out in search of another one to teach, kin to teach. The need to keep moving ...

  2. Why coywolf?

    The following is part of my introductory post from another therian hangout. It's very brief, but I thought I'd share anyhow. What makes me think I'm a coywolf and not a coyote or a wolf?

    My story is long, very long, life-long. It tends to get detailed and poetic. I'll try to summarize here, as difficult as it is to summarize an identity. ("Why do you feel male?" to an FTM trans person, for example. Long story!)

    I started out on the fringes of the ...
  3. Rant: On Wolfaboos and Wildlife "Advocates"

    Fifty Facebook groups later, you'd think a decent number of people would have donated to the $1500 Coywolf Association goal, but no. Not a penny.

    And the pitches are worded right. Silver-tongued and tailored to each individual group's aim. I could post the variants of the pitch here, on my blog. Every post is approved by the administrators.

    Crossposted from DW:

    I've been staying away from Dreamwidth while I have nothing nice to say about my current landlord, who let me live here an extra week, or my current roommates. They're manipulative and beyond juvenile. The types of people who shouldn't be allowed to breed. More about that later, maybe; I've ranted enough on Werelist.

    I found a new place! A place with big windows and sunlight!

  5. Repost: Coyote is not a dog

    Journal entry, Oct. 23rd, 2014.

    Coyote is an enigma. Liesk has that right in an ancient essay on The Marsh.

    Let me get this out of the way: I don't believe in going after anyone for what they wrote ages ago. In the words of the likely-mythical Don Juan from Journey To Ixtlan: "Your problem is that you have too much personal history." It's not right to pounce on writers for words they wrote a decade ago, but I do want to address just one line as a ...
