A few days ago when again I was lying in a white-curtained cubical, this time in a clinic, I got to noticing all the textures, shades, & shapes in view -- all white-ish.

George, his brother Alan, & I have had several journeys to Chesterman Beach, south of Tofino B.C. We just had another & the drama of the sea, wind, sand & trees continues to be wonderfully good for our souls.
Here's the cast of characters:
The big picture:
We had sun, clouds, & rain-- all perfectly acceptable.
When I am out there I always get caught up by 'something' that I can't get enough of feasting my eyes on.
So here are the latest various eye-catchers:
Celery stalks: It really bugs me that the new blogspot OS won't let me place these two images side by side! Grrrrrr!!
Spruce wood posts:
Eel grass 'fencing': I just loved the delicacy & simplicity of the curves.
And finally the surprises: I'm always drawn to this natural BOX in the ROX.... I've photographed it more than once.
& The Chair
We did have two others join us for a few nights & for some food & talk-- Sal & Jobst.
There were some other absent members of this trip: Karl & Sara Thompson who just couldn't deal with all the covid/border/teaching schedule obstacles coming from Boulder, CO. And Phyllis & Ed were originally going to be with us some of the time, except a hernia surgery got in the way.
That's it for now.

In 1985 when people in Vancouver were talking about the up-coming Expo 86 whose theme was going to be transportation & communication there was this truck that was catching everyone's eye.
We called it "The God Truck". The man who created it, I learned from my friend Philip Lander, was Ernie Ruff. He was from Telegraph Creek, or was it Whiskey Creek... No matter-- up in the Stickine... I wave my hand towards the north... at that point in my life in Vancouver I hadn't see much of BC. It was a total blur, & some of it still is!

Originally in 2012 I had hoped to publish a book, Oh Solo Double, Trio, but I exhausted myself with that effort.
While I was teaching at Moberly School in Vancouver B.C my 2nd grade students were occasionally asked to write in their math journals & I wrote in mine. My math journal was the seed of Oh Solo Double, Trio.
Now is the time to try to figure out what to DO with this set! There is a bit of exasperation in this voice, in this sentence, because it's not easy to find a home for such a large & unusual body of work.
A Lot of Nothing is about zero. (2008) (24" x 36")
That's it for now.
