North! To Alaska!

Tomorrow I’m off on my annual voyage to Alaska, my second home, my heart home. Commercial fishing awaits, long days and short nights. Dirt, grime, fish scales in unexpected places. No running water, no electricity, pond water and out houses. Tundra, salmon berries, moss berries, tundra cotton. Moose, caribou, foxes, grizzlies, birds that sing “I love you”. Mud, water, sand, agates. The steam house that I can pronounce, but have no idea how to spell. Connections made with family, friends, and the land. Nature, spirit, beauty, peace.

Wishing everyone a happy and safe Fourth of July, and I’ll be back in a couple of weeks! xoxo
