Near my home on Kodiak Island, #Alaska is a "village" of WWII Quonset huts in various states of decay. It's a wonderful place to wander around with your camera. Most of the time you can't hear any manmade sounds. I like to think the moss is slowly muffling the rumbles of war--from the past and into the future.

Milky Way and Northern Lights among cottonwood trees. I went for a drive on a cold night to find new locations for shooting "lights." I was pleasantly surprised to find the Milky Way cutting across the tops of the trees. There was a car parked in the foreground but the silhouette hid it nicely. +Landscape Photography Show

Fotokite: The drone "kite" that uses a leash
If you're into drones but don't want to deal with FAA regs, check out the Fotokite. It's the lightest GoPro-carrying quadcopter on the market that packs into a thermos-size container. Made in Switzerland, not China.

For 15 years I've written a weekly garden column for our daily newspaper here in Kodiak, Alaska. This week I devoted my space to Sowing Wisdom and turned it into a blog post. Have a wonderful day!

Learn how this Homer, Alaska woman fights cancer with food [blog post]
When Libby McClaren was diagnosed with cancer, the doctor recommended immediate surgery to remove the tumor from her bladder, followed by chemo and radiation treatments. Libby doesn’t recall how she reacted but she needed quiet time. After talking to her husband Clancy, and her two sons, she unplugged the phone and rested over the weekend. That was seven years ago...
