Leaf Speak


Winter’s approach has stripped the forest whose fallen leaves display beauty in cryonic death, and silently speak endurance to the ‘naked’ wilderness.

In every change, in every falling leaf there is some pain, some beauty.” – Amit Ray

Soul Therapy


Leaves and temperatures falling in synchrony with winter’s approach . . . invigorating soul therapy for wandering the Last Frontier’s wilderness reaches.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.” Here’s a few ‘moments’ that left me breathless today.

I M Blessed . . . May U B 2

But as for me, it is good to be near God. I have made the Lord God my refuge, to tell of all your works.”

Alaskan Gold Rush


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

Seasons Transition


Fresh snow dusting the mountains, yellow tinged leaves . . . Last Frontier signs of Fall all knocking on Summer’s door.

To everything there is a season, and time to every purpose under heaven“. – Ecclesiastes 3:1

Small Wonders


Creation treated me to two small wonders on today’s woods wander.

One, a ‘tree’ delicately inscribed on a fallen leaf. 

The other, lighter than cotton; weigh for weight 5 times stronger than steel; 1,000 times thinner than a human hair; capable of stretching 4 times its length; consisting of 100% sticky protein, it’s manufactured by one of creation’s smallest creatures into intricate designs to capture food . . . spider silk. 

With no blueprint to follow, I watched fascinated as the tiny spider arduously spun its exquisite, geometric web . . . a web of beauty to me . . . a web of death to an unsuspecting insect.


Two small wonders . . . both testifying to an Omnipotent Creator . . . or random evolution? I grieve if you choose the latter.                                +
