Alaska, My North Star

From a trip by ferry last September. Saxman Totem Park, Ketchikan.

There is some beautiful work being done by contemporary Native artists

Brother Patrick at St. Michael’s Russian Orthodox Cathedral, Sitka

If you visit most any store in the Alaskan panhandle, odds are what’s on the shelf came by barge

And you wonder why I’ve been to the SE of Alaska 7 times by boat.

Monster’s Lair

I sent a preview of the image below to a few friends. I got this in return.
New and improved in so many ways.

Hey Greg, this would go great on somebody’s grandchild’s wall as a big print : > )


Praying for a better week for all.


Modern Apple Orchard


As the apples sway in the breeze, they bump against the ledger lines that are stung exactly like sheet music. Each ledger line is actually tightened in between measures (like music, that’s what arborists here call the posts: measures). Each ledger is tuned to a certain harp like frequency. As the wind, wire and fruit gently mix with each other, there is music in the air.
