The stories I’ve covered—
how beluga whales are the
canaries of the sea, why
nose flute players are
vanishing as Myanmar
opens up—are starting to
gain traction. One that was
in the Anchorage News
recently is about the ways
dreams can be woven into
basket designs. I brought
a sample back with me.
It seems to defy gravity.

with its tempting smells
of fresh bread & honey
near her pillow. Tear gas
& protests drift away.

Our 2016 calendar is here.
I can’t stop looking at it. Lace
icing, delicate sugar flowers.
Big Thanks to the I ♡ My

Water, in the internal circle
of the medicine wheel as an
element with the frog clan
linked, is a transparently
liquid which exists of hy-
drogen & oxygen. In a
liquid state it fills the
rivers, lakes, brooks, & seas
of the world. One freezes
to ice. Heated up water
changes to steam. General
meaning: your emotional
being & your connection with
the element water—your
sensuousness, your sexuality—
the female aspect of your
nature—your connection
with the forces of the moon.

large, well-ventilated stalls
& well-groomed riding trails.

It’s been a busy week
for the web development
tool—attending extreme-
rock functions, acquiring
contemporary Māori works
of art; & now success with
a petition to allow motor-
cyclists to legally ride be-
tween cars on local roads.
