The following is the first of three set of images I’ll be adding to my website from a recent trip to Juneau, Alaska.
I have taken tweets from the last couple of weeks and put them into a collection, which I am calling a chapbook.
This past weekend I took the trip across the country to visit my homeland and my family.
Smoldering Potato. Originally written in Kirkland, Washington. Originally performed in Redmond, Washington. Dedicated after the fact to Raanan David.
