I lost my digital camera, I think. It was wrapped in a boy-scout smokey-the-bear hanky, last seen on my van dash, next to the open window, outside the gas station. I left my phone at my new job, on the edge of the stainless sink, in the darkened kitchen stuffed with vintage rootbeer flavoring. I … Continue reading secret chicken

It's eleven at night and the sun is just setting. Some nameless forest bird is chirping, and the newly born insects are batting at the window-screen. It was seventy-five degrees today, like instant summer, no time for foreplay when you've only got twelve frost-free weeks.

In Anchorage, it’s really spring. All the snow is gone, and the air smells like dirt. And the sea, too, although I cannot see it, beyond these dead potted plants and ratty driveway, ground down by winter’s ice-age of weather. I can smell the sea, though, and hear the seagulls.

Going private update!
Gosh! I had no idea I still had so many readers. Seriously, my stat counter was way, way down. It's heartening to know that folks are still reading. It turns out that I can selectively password-protect posts, so that is what I will do. There are none of them yet, but those who commented on … Continue reading Going private update!

Vaycay from the blog
Hey y'all- I'm going to be taking some space from this blog in the next few weeks, so I won't be posting very often. Just so you know, and you don't think I've like died or something.
