I live and write on Lingít Aaní, and gratefully acknowledge the past, present and future caretakers of this beautiful place, the Jilkaat Kwaan and Jilkoot Kwaan.

It’s crazy blowing snow and dark, again. They say we will get another 5-10 inches today,  but yesterday was so great I can only hope  there’s another blue sky high in our future. In the meantime, here’s a postcard of my walk home from yoga (9:30) and church (10:30)  at the Chilkat Center Sunday around noon.Chip dropped me off, after blasting through the pre-plow berms in his truck, and had me do what we now call the Quito bus stop leap –thanks to JJ’s descriptions-   as he coasted by the snowy Chilkat Center parking lot and on down the hill so he wouldn’t get stuck.– I’m just kidding. He stopped, but for only a minute and then said I should probably walk home, which was more than fine with me, and now you can come along too–
