A Shared Journey...

In August, I traveled to the west coast of Vancouver Island, BC with 20 other people. We camped on a beach and shared breakfasts and dinners together.

It was a magical time. On my first day, friends took me for a walk to a nearby beach, where we followed tracks of four pedators: wolf, cougar, and bear.

What?! TRASH?

And had all-too-frequent encounters with trash, big and small. Incongruous and disturbing.

Summer Moon Scriver, photographer and fellow Chimera Gallery artist, was with us. By chance - or maybe not by chance - she and I were scheduled for a joint show starting October 13, 2018. Sitting on the beach together, we decided to base our work on our shared journey.

 Me, just sitting!

Me, just sitting!

We came home inspired, dismayed, and focused on responding to our time spent with the horizon, the sky, and companions.
