Scare Yourself




Clearly, I feel a bit in flux the past 10 months - it began last September. We lost a great artist, teacher, human being and friend of mine with the death of Jerry Burchfield. Subsequently, other photographer/artist/friends of mine passed - Larry Sultan in December, Ronn Reinberg (theatre/dance lighting designer extraordinaire) and Margaret Scott (my aunt) in January, and then my father and Joe Deal in June. Joe's photographs were the subject of my first book.
Maybe that is what spurred me to cut my hair, shave my mustache (2nd time in 40 years), in preparation (mentally) for this trip.
I always thought it was easier and cheaper to change appearances by growing and shaping and shedding hair; however, I got so freaked out by seeing my reflection afterwards that I immediately began to grow hair again. The updated look will be the next post.

A short trip to Montana

Over Memorial Day, Raven and I ran over to Montana for a week....visiting Bonnie Lambert and Marshall Mayer in Helena, and then onto Big Arm and Bigfork around the Flathead Lake, first visiting Sandy and Mike and then Kathy and Stephen.

World's Largest Truck

Canadians seem to like big things, especially the father north that you travel. Undoubtedly it is linked to the scale - immense valleys and mountainous hillside filled with trees (and no trails or roads), large lakes and rivers (many of them greenish with the silt of glacial runoff) and clear, bright blue skies.

In Sparwood, BC, we inadvertently found what was billed as the "World's Largest Truck."
Built by General Motors in 1974 to haul coal (retired in 1990) - 260 tons, with tires that are 11 feet in diameter.
