What is Northern Loss?

My name is Jack, and I am the author of everything you’re going to read here on Northern Loss.

Here are some basic facts about me:

  • I’m 17 years old
  • I live in New England
  • Music is very important to me
  • I like to hike

In addition to the bullets listed above, I feel like I should include that I am, and have always been, a very creative person. I’m constantly drawing scenes from different futures and different worlds that sometimes include a painfully-detailed deluge of future-history to fully understand. In addition to this, I also enjoy (occasionally) making instrumental electronic concept albums and (frequently) photographing the natural world on my hikes. Like I said, I am a very creative person, but I also have a tendency to keep these things mostly to myself.

Northern Loss is my way of sharing my stories, thoughts, songs and photos with the world, or whomever happens to stumble across this blog. The content may not always be very long, or posts may be infrequent (I’ll try my best to be on here regularly), but I’ll do my best to publish things I’m proud of.

Oh, and as for the name itself, it’s the product of a fascination/fixation/attachment I’ve had for years with northern New England and history and stories of the people who make their homes there. The last August on Priestly Mountain, or nights on Lonesome Ridge, stuff like that that has always resonated with me emotionally. I might go into more detail on it someday, maybe not.

That covers the basics, I think. So, for now, thanks for reading. I’ll see you in the north.
