In an attempt to live as hopefully, seizing all opportunities for a bit of grandness, I will be copiloting a roadtrip with my sister, who is currently seizing her opportunities of baking until the sun goes down in Anchorage, Alaska.
We shall be driving the entire west coast of North America, starting in Anchorage and making our way to the Mexican border, maybe further. Ira Glass says, “Great stories happen to those who can tell them.” I guess John Steinbeck told a pretty good one and maybe that’s our real hope. That we will miraculously be able to absorb his power of thought to paper and translate it with photos. Whatever the cause, this year is about a better story, so I guess it’s not just the telling but maybe the doing.
So please follow along in our adventures. There will be more reminders. If you want to meet up, book a photo session, trade photos for things, like food and lodging, even keepsakes and heirlooms, we will not say no.
