Sunday's Thought

“They're certainly entitled to think that, and they're entitled to full respect for their opinions... but before I can live with other folks I've got to live with myself. The one thing that doesn't abide by majority rule is a person's conscience.” 
~ Harper Lee, from To Kill a Mockingbird

River Talk

The Chilkat River isn't so much talking this morning as it is howling-- my face has a fine layer of silty grit thanks to the dust storm blowing down from Klukwan. I would have taken a picture, but my mittens are too clunky and I couldn't take them off without flash-freezing my fingers which I need in order to type. (Two of them, at least.) Last night's Rivertalk story telling evening in the Chilkat Center was so moving and whacky in a weird and wonderful Haines way that it made my February.

Happy Tuesday

Here is a short, non-political, critically informative video explanation of Alaska's financial crisis by Gunnar Knapp that every Alaskan should watch and share with friends. Thanks to Charles Wolforth's column in the Dispatch, which is a good read as well. There will also be a citizen discussion about the Haines economy Saturday night at 7:00 in the Chilkat Center.

"Smile at each other; smile at your wife, smile at your husband, smile at your children, smile at each other – it doesn’t matter who it is – and that will help you to grow up in greater love for each other." ~ Mother Teresa
