2000 Deciduous Trees is an exploration of individual experience selected from Nath Jones’s ‘90s zine, The Skirt. The writing resists losing its balance during a time when gasoline was cheap and no one drove slowly on the cusp of the new millennium. The voice yearns for change. But nothing can be done in a twenty-something world where one-night stands get forgotten with execution-style murders. About the On Impulse eBook Series: If you read the tag on a shirt and think, "Man. That's pretty manipulative," these books are for you. The On Impulse series plays with the storytelling impulse: how we create our worlds, mold our minds, set our sights, and shape our legacies. In such a fast-paced culture each of us must be conscious of how words can operate for and against us. The series invites the reader to contemplate how we use language now: online, in full-length books, and with each other.

This book was a joy to put together. It was great fun re-visiting the zine content and reworking it into a cohesive manuscript. The zine was written when I was in college. Much of the writing still called to the essence of this life. So I rented a house on the Oregon coast for a month. Did the bulk of the work there. Friends and family came to share time there. We ate wonderful food and took lovely wet drives. I met the neighbors, who were in the middle of a massive logging undertaking. They helped me and one of my best friends build a fire.About the Author :
