Mill Bay Beach, Kodiak, Alaska – December 28, 2008

 

Now that The Arctic Chihuahua and I are safely ensconced upon the rock that is Kodiak Island, we have a bit more opportunity to catch up with some of the projects each of us has set out before us.  Gidget has a small stuffed mole still needing to be fully consumed, and I have a few pet projects myself.  


1)  Learn the camera

2) Learn the camera

3) Learn the camera

After those three projects have been completed, I hope to get back on track with the expressive therapeutic modalities work.  

You might check out some of the early photos of “Arctic Chihuahua Photography” as well as the earliest of the Poetry and Poetry Therapy posts.

If anyone can help with learning the camera, I’d sure love to hear from you!

Cheerios and always,

Elephant Fountain

Yesterday I received an e-mail from a friend I met while in my early 20’s.  He and I used to go around a bit about the pros and cons of staying in the Los Angeles area versus leaving the metropolis to live and travel.  You may be familiar with that theme…should I go or should I stay…my hometown…and so on.  In our case, Los Angeles County was not small but it was familiar and full of late nights with friends and intriguing films.  

He stayed, I left.  After having met Peter, I took one false start to San Francisco Bay’s north penninsula, then a leap to the home of my heart…Idaho.  Up north, there was always something to work on, another wall to paint or tear out, another vegetable or flower bed to care for, children to bring to the river.

Down south Peter was always working on something too: rebuilding a sports car, making a movie, always learning to do something new.  A very creative fellow is Peter. He’s been sending photos of one of his latest projects, snapshots of his designs through to the actualization, and most recently a link to a video clip of his work:  Elephant Fountain. 

Now you and I don’t have to leave the Arctic or New Mexico to travel to Burma, Peter brings his travels to us. Enjoy!

Cheerios,

Jennifer and The Arctic Chihuahua
