This post is from late February, earlier this year. I didn’t post it in time, and have been sitting on it ever since. * * * SGang Gwaay (Red Cod Village) is one of the most remote places in the world. A UNESCO heritage site, it lies … More A Trip in SGang Gwaay
I can’t believe it. I cannot believe it’s already been nine weeks of van-livin’, Canada-tourin’, music-festival-dancin’, new-friend-makin’ and general summer-travelin’-shenanigan-havin’! Though my head feels heavy with the idea of returning home to routine, my mind, heart and spirit are filled with the emanating vibrancy of life. I’ve met wonderful souls, seen some mind-blowingly beautiful places, … More And Summer Winds on Down the Road
Wow. It has been so long since I’ve posted anything. It’s been a month and a half since my voyage in beloved Haida Gwaii, and I still don’t feel in sync with this wild mainland world. I don’t think I ever will again, and I’m strangely okay with that. There have been a few moments … More The Advanture Begins!
The following post is from August of 2013. It was briefly published, but taken down for a while. That said, I’m at Jags, and two absolutely stunning bikes just rode up – the first of the season. And, wouldn’t you believe it, one of them is a Shadow, just like mine. Thanks, universe! * … More Ride on.

My HGSE cohorts each answered key questions about themselves and their experiences on Haida Gwaii, while sharing something really meaningful with all of us. It was amazing, to celebrate understanding and give a beautiful insight to everyone. … More PhotoVoice
It’s almost Valentine’s Day! The extra emphasis on love this time of year is a beautiful thing. When I was a kid, waking up on Valentine’s Day was as exciting as Christmas. My parents always did something nice for each other and for me, and it made for a really beautiful day, even when life sometimes … More Ling.xaal, and Valentine’s Day

The weather was forecasted to be sunny and gorgeous, so the plan was to get up early on Thursday, quickly hitch a ride to Tlell (about 35 km from Skidegate, where I live), and hike to the Pesuta … More Anticipation, in Moderation
Welcome back! It’s been an intense few weeks. I actually had to go back and recount my last post, just to figure out how to begin. Our five courses are arranged in blocks, with one class studied intensively at a time. This first block is now, suddenly, coming to its close. I can say, confidently, … More One Fifth.
Second post! It hasn’t even been a week, and I’m already quite at home in Skidegate. Our house is bright in the day, quiet at night, and we have a great veranda on which to ponder the stars – and it is decorated with art, photography, and local history. On Friday, our introduction from the … More New Way of Life
Simply spectacular. The weather has been so kind to us so far!
