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 was a three granddaughter day– baby Silvia Rose stayed home with her mom. And holy cow, were those girls busy. Phoebe the grumpy terrier was unusually attentive and Pearl, the happy Golden Retriever,  was her usual baby-doting self, if a little wetter than usual thanks to the rain.  By the end, Caroline wasn’t the only one who could use a nap.
