If people concentrated on the really important things they'd be a shortage of fishing poles. Carpet Diem means fish of the day around here. Pinks and Silver-Ko ho salmon.



There's a fine line between fishing and just standing o
n a bridge looking like an idiot unless you are in Alaska.




Fishing is actually  boring, unless you catch an actual fish, and then it is disgusting

Great Black Bear is walking with us, Pink Salmon swimming upstream with us, as we stroll Creek street...






My mind is like compost. 
 




"What a cold and rainy day. Where on earth is the sun hid away."

 I pledge allegiance to the soil of Ketchikan Island, one ecosystem in diversity under the sun With joyful interpenetration for all. ...
Raindrops keep falling on my head
... I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin'
Because I'm free
Nothing's worrying me..

The Etiquette of Freedom
 In Alaska, there are those who love to get dirty and fix things. They drink coffee at dawn, beer after work. And those who stay clean, just appreciate things. At breakfast they have milk and juice at night. There are those who do both, like me, I drink hot chocolate.   Learning about the bears and the bees  and the flowers and the trees is not just community college  science or nature boy social studies — it's local etiquette. It's rude not to know your neighbors, you know?

'Off the Trail' is another name for the Way, and sauntering off the trail is the practice of the wild. That is also where--paradoxically--we do our best work. But we need trails and paths and will always be maintaining them. You must first be on the path, before you canturn and walk into the wild."-The Practice of The Wild GS

I knew there would be days like this,
 I just wish someone would have told me how many!
Dutch Harbor Gear DHG rough and ready. No such thing as good weather here only good clothing! I find myself in the perpetual company of people who love the rain and love to laugh about it. This may be my definition of true happiness.It's the locals,some emos, who just get wet,others, poets, who go dancing in the rain, hoping to be struck by lightning. The song remains the same in this infinite playlist called the rainforest. Charlie Chaplin liked to walk in the rain because nobody could see his tears. I don't cry, like the Little Tramp because it's over. I smile, like the Big Kahuna because it happened.

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes. Marcel Proust

To be away from home and yet to feel at home anywhere.

How I do  time, is how I create and re-create myself.  On a ship,  one lives in the grand manner of writers. We  basically do  nothing all day. At sea, I could do my mind no greater service than remain in my default mode of idleness.

Here, on land,  in the Alaskan  wilderness, is the preservation of the outter world. The sturdy distinctions between blue collar work and leisure, have been broken down by mother nature which is beautiful but will kill you if you are not prepared. (Think Deadliest Catch Meets Ice Road Truckers) So you squirrel away money for a rainy day- which is everyday here!

On a ship, it is basically traveling for people who really can't be bothered doing it. (Think Love Boat Meets Fantasy and Gilligan's Island ). The battles are so fierce because the stakes are so low- nothing happens next.

 Yet it has been a salvaging of my inner life, the "right kind" of nothing, and  a way to recover my whole life, a lived vocation, a principle.It wasn't the 6 or 8 hours visiting these exotic and far away  places that made the experience, but my recollection of it:  It  was the day after day at sea, and of getting there. The endurance. The idleness that was the mother of possibility.

My idle hands, living like  the idle rich, a slap in the face to blue chip ambition. Time is money, money is time, and the opposite  of having is doing nothing at all. After all, the goal of ambition is sublime leisure.---where, with my 2PM power  naps, I remained a  well-rested being who  had only to dream with my eyes wide open and behold.

If a little idleness  is dangerous, the cure for it is not to be less idle  but to be more idle, to be idle all the time.

I used to make things up. full of magic, innocence,
feeling, and vision, I would "embelish" on the truth, to make a better story.  I was actually affirming what I wanted-state it and create it.  Now as
Time passes, little by little everything that I had spoken in falsehood became true. All the lies have been washed away by these last few years at sea. It's nothing but the truth.

Fishing is for people who don't know how to golf. Yet, Catch and Release  fishing is a lot like golf. You don't have to eat the ball to have a good time.

I'm hooked on Alaska.  Saw momma bear and baby bear, a bald eagle and ravens. And the Salmon are swimming up stream to lay their eggs.


When you feel neglected, think of the
female salmon, who lays 3000000 eggs but no one remembers her on Mother's Day


Yoga Bear
We all know what low male on the totem pole means but have you ever heard about  low female salmon on the totem pole?

Looking For Alaska
Teach a man to fish. You feed him for a day. Show up in Alaska and you don't have to teach him anything. This place is definitely awesome...and there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing.





I'm taking Cruise ships off the endangered list-They are everywhere in Ketchikan

The fish are jumping out of the water. This place is a rainforest.The wetter, the better.It's what makes this place so breathtakingly beautiful. H2oh! Gotta walk between the drop with all this liquid sunshine. It is one of the most moist places in all of North America. The wilderness is therapy. Herman Melville said of the sea "God's only voice is silence", and let me add that healing rain is really a touch from God too.
I have all the confidence of a guy selling snowballs to the Eskimos.
