Washed them both. The Triumph in the back was a great bike over the last few days, but that Guzzi...


Astoria. (exhale)


The Portland Art Museum is always great.


Little Richard's House of Donuts. Westport WA. I don't know what I missed but it looks good.


On the road from Vancouver to Astoria there's this little lake by the road. It's the kind of place where you might stop for a quick swim. Or to take a photograph.



There was a sign above the bar at the Cameron House in Toronto that read, "this is paradise." I installed this bathtub on the deck of a house on Galiano Island. Paradise may be in more than one location.



First Pump. Seymour Mountain.

Iona Beach.



We'll always have something.





The Audain Gallery in Whistler is a beautiful building designed by the Patkau Architects housing a great collection of works by BC artists.

I need a camera to my eye
To my eye, reminding
Which lies I have been hiding
Which echoes belong
I've counted out days
To see how far
I've driven in the dark
With echoes in my heart

I'm shooting film again. It will be a bit before I post again, about as long as it takes to get through a roll of film and scan it, I supposed, which could be tomorrow, but I doubt it. But I doubt it will be a long time either.

I baked a cake today. The birthday week of an 11 year old girl continues.

Happy Birthday.


Yard work. Comfortably.


A girl and her cat.

"I want you to feed me. But I don't want you to know I want you to feed me. I won't even look at you, but me being here may remind you that you haven't fed me yet."

iPhone picture, because I knew if I stood up to get my camera the cat would get up. He did. Straight to his food dish.

 Slow Leaves were supposed to play the Wise Hall, but confusion, and no show at the Hall. So they found a house to play in, and it was quite good.

The neighbors complained about the noise though, so the next act moved to the basement. Micah Erenberg was quite good as well.

Happy accidents. And a lovely night.

Some 36+ years ago this was such a big deal that someone thought it important that a 10 year old in Canada should have a mug commemorating the event. 36+ years later that mug sits on my desk and I'm still not sure what to do with it. I asked eBay if it's worth anything; it isn't. And so it sits. Commemorating in perpetuity, or until the cat knocks it off my desk.

Motorcycle rides east of the city. It was disappointing to see my favourite diner/pie place in Hope is no longer, I was really looking forward to apple pie a la mode, but it's shut down. They had a program where you could bring in a pie plate and they'd sell you a delicious home made pie for $10. Sooooo good. But it's gone, and I could be sad, but instead I'm happy that it lasted as long as it did, and I had delicious, delicious pie there dozens of times, with wonderful people.

And so it goes. - K. Vonnegut. or was it Billy Joel?


Another one gone. Or going.
