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 believe that life is an extraordinary gift, a blink of bright light between vast darknesses. I believe that the fingerprints of the Maker are everywhere : children, hawks, water.” – Brian Doyle from Leaping: Revelations and Epiphanies
