Fall in Alaska is celebrating life and death at the same time.

I went for my daily walk this afternoon after another grueling day of phone calls and problem solving. Today was the day that with every one positive encounter, there was another tugging at my heart strings. I needed to recharge and refresh my energy. I walk to think about my book, to argue ideas, and to spy on my neighbors Halloween decorations.

Such a happy tree!

Today was a slow, drawn out walk where I saw trees turning and flowers blooming. This is rare in Alaska- it was brilliant, it was beautiful, it was like the world was welcoming death.

Why does one change and not the other? Is he hanging in until the last moment? Trying not to give into the frost?

I say all this to say, I was asked why I don’t write in a journal everyday. I thought I don’t have anything to say- but after reading another readers 1000 day challenge, I have decided I am going to tell you readers what winter is really like here in Alaska- day by day until 1 March- when the world wakes up for us. Ready for the challenge? I am!

Flowers still brilliant

One does not simply become a famous writer! It takes many hours before the sun comes up and even more when the sun sets. I am never sure what world I am living in, the one that I am writing or reality.
