Wild and Free


An approaching storm enhanced Alaska’s wild and free aura in my wanderings along the Matanuska River this afternoon. My soul is at peace in this vast and rugged corner of creation I’m grateful to call home. I M Blessed . . . May U B 2

He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted.”

1 Chronicles 6:12

Alaskan Gold Rush


There’s an annual two-week gold rush in Alaska that provides unlimited ‘gold’, and everyone can stake a claim . . . Fall 😊😊😊

Flowers and Fire . . . Smiles and Spirits


Fireweed is named for its ability to rapidly colonize areas burned by fire. The poppy is a symbol of remembrance, and hope for a peaceful future.

Wandering the woods today my thoughts drifted into a muddled ambivalence. Past fires have regretfully scorched areas of my life … yet . . . I’m forever grateful having been mercifully spared, anticipating a forever peaceful future.

Flowers produce smiles, and smiles lift spirits. Native fireweed and poppy blooms lifted mine today.
