There is so much love for you. You don’t need to convince me that you need my support. Really. My love and attention for you isn’t based on any visible struggles and wounds. I honor them. But they’re not why I love and support you. Of course there are things we can improve, stuff we can [...]

January is a month heavy on new resolutions, talk of starting over, doing things differently. In my last newsletter I explained a bit about why I don’t often make New Year’s resolutions. Instead, most of my year-planning and resolutions happen at the end of my commercial fishing season in Bristol Bay. The transition back into [...]

The other night my parents were telling me about the mysteries and adventures of modern communication. As Mom tried to explain, her new phone kept “dinging” at all hours of the day and night.

They are visible. I can’t stop it. It’s Spring. This is what happens. The tension between the slumber of winter and the frenetic [...]

Winter can be a time of hibernation for many. As a friend of mine often says, it’s a time to “hunker down.” Often I agree. There is also something to be said for getting out there, into the world, beyond the fear of cold or wet, and being in winter. I’m not talking about winter [...] When I was 11, I was in sixth grade.
