ART :: What is it?

On June 21, 2012 By

The beauty of art to me, is it’s many faces. Emo­tional. Engag­ing. Beau­ti­ful. Bril­liant. Intent­ful. Intel­li­gent. Inter­ac­tive. Con­tem­po­rary. Con­tex­tual. Con­tro­ver­sial. Con­ver­sa­tional. His­tor­i­cal. Polit­i­cal. Discuss…

Vis­it­ing this place was a great inspi­ra­tion for me. I would say it was one of the most stir­ring and inspir­ing moments of my visit, and I am grate­ful that the Haida Nation, these Elders and mem­bers stood so firmly to pro­tect this place. We should do the same now, as the North­ern Gate­way Pipeline Project by Enbridge threat­ens once again, this mag­nif­i­cent cul­ture and ecosys­tem. Stand up and speak out about the effects that this pipeline will have on habi­tat, cul­ture and the ecol­ogy of our planet. Write your MP and the offi­cial oppo­si­tion. Make your­self heard…and be part of the new “Line”.

The ver­dant val­leys that lay at the bot­tom of majes­tic snow-capped peaks that line the sides of the Yel­low­head high­way #16 west­ward towards Prince Rupert…have taken my breath away today. The smell of the air is dif­fer­ent here. It’s newer — fresher, filled with spirit and the life-breath of the trees. The life-breath of this planet.

I get it. I get why we need to look at this land with dif­fer­ent eyes, and pro­tect it. I’ve never seen any­thing like it. Pristine…beautiful. There are no words for this place…and there are fewer peo­ple to see it.

A Study in Contrasts

On May 23, 2012 By

Noth­ing quite so excit­ing than start­ing your trip by get­ting this close to a bear. I had a great day on the road, expe­ri­enc­ing every form of weather from snow to sun­shine. In one day, I spot­ted two black bears, a huge male elk, bighorn sheep, deer, loons, bald eagles.

It’s made me real­ize once again, how priv­i­leged I am to live in this part of the world, and that so much is right in my own backyard.
