"What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset."

It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime.

It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset.”

A random turn off the winding road from Homer to Seward; an arbitrary turn following the “Cemetery” sign, and there we are again on the edge of the world in that tiny wedge between life and death.

This is the fifth in a series of daily travel journal videos I made during our trip to Alaska. This is quite simply the road between Homer and Seward on a bright and perfect day that ended in a rainbow.

  • It is moments like that “arbitrary turning” that etch themselves forever on our hearts and consciousness, and we are never the same afterwards. We thereafter view the world with different eyes and sensibilities, and we are so much richer, and have so much more to share with our worlds. Thank you for your world view through your stunning images and gorgeous words (where do you find them?)…xoxo
