Long ago I learned nothing gets done by just wishing it. You have to do it.
~ Louis L'Amour
Faith is like radar that sees through the fog -
the reality of things at a distance
that the human eye cannot see.
~ Corrie Ten Boom (Tramp for the Lord)
Before you can win, you have to believe you are worthy.
~ Mike Ditka
Sometimes you need to hang on to someone else's hope,
someone else's peace and sanity while yours is under seige.
Courage, hope, faith, sanity, peace... they all come and go.
Borrow them from someone else's supply until your own comes back in.
~ Linda Mundy
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud
was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
~ Anais Nin
Grief can take care if itself,
but to get the full value of a joy
you must have somebody to divide it with.
~ Mark Twain
Every evening I turn worries over to God.
He's going to be up all night anyway.
~ Mary C. Crowley
Courage is reclaiming your life
after a devastating event robs you
of your confidence and self-esteem.
It is facing tomorrow with a firm resolve
to reach deep within yourself to find
another strength, another talent...
It is taking yourself to another level
of your own existence where you are once again
whole, productive, special...
~ Catherine Britton
Expect to have hope rekindled.
Expect your prayers to be answered in wondrous ways.
The dry seasons in life do not last.
The spring rains will come again.
~ Sarah Ban Breathnach
Practice rather than preach.
Make of your life an affirmation,
defined by your ideals,
not the negation of others.
Dare to the level of your capability
then go beyond to a higher level.
~ Alexander Haig
Take the first step in faith.
You don't have to see the whole staircase,
just take the first step.
~ Martin Luther King Jr.
Too many people are afraid of silence.
It is as if something has to be happening all the time.
But often, with silence, there is more happening.
There is a reflection on what was really said to us,
what was really meant by the remarks, and, yes,
perhaps some passage of thought
between that person and ourselves.
~ The Amazing Kreskin

Ah, Home Sweet Home - two weeks at a time
North Slope winter ice road. A handy and "green" way to get from here to there. Come summer they just melt away.
North Slope drilling rig. Exactly the same landscape as ANWR to the east.
Last run of Red Salmon. A sure sign that Autumn is just around the bend...
