Orca Inlet from Mt Eyak, Cordova, Alaska

We all live in special places, but coastal Alaska really is a jewel unto itself.  It’s inspiring to see they daily changes and seasonal rhythms that animate this community.  This is my noticing, my observations of the small moments of beauty and uniqueness this environment, this life has to offer.

A chance to delight in the discovery and experience of this place, perhaps common and familiar at times and exotic and spell binding at others.  And mostly to not let it all slip away too quickly, instead to pin it down for just a moment before the seasons spin on into years.

I write a fair bit about the knitting and dyeing that makes up my days and also about the odd adventure of living here…like eating bear sausage for breakfast or trying to stuff 70 salmon into your freezer.

So, welcome!  I hope you find yourself at home while you’re here and may you find some morsels of inspiration nestled in the posts.
