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.

I will be gone– to Mexico– and off-line until the first week in February. I know, I will miss you too– but how can you miss me of I don’t go away? (As Dan Hicks sort of sings.)  Also, this may be an opportunity for a little web cleanse, kind of like the Well&Fit Community Cleanse, but without having to give up wine, coffee, dairy, wheat and sugar. Just the internet. Think of all the things you can get done in a day if you skip those Facebook updates. It might be worth trying to do without it all,  just to see how dependent you may be. I know it will be hard for me. And that this world wide web will still be here when I return in three weeks. In the meantime, thanks so much for so faithfully reading what I write and sharing it– and try to do some good and find the good in others.
