May the long time sun shine upon you

All love surround you,

And the pure light within you

Guide your way home.

This is the tenth and last video travel journal I made during our August/September trip to Alaska. It is an emotional farewell to our great friends and selfless hosts Charlie Johnston and Elaine Rhode.

  • Loved loved loved the final shot of you, Sandy, with little papoos doll in your backpack–that image has it all… Your joy in Alaska’s charms… Color & warmth & good humor…

  • Touching. I get a huge body of experience behind what we have shared in these videos. I feel I know Charlie and Elaine, and would greet them as old friends if we crossed paths. Thank you for sharing these glimpses, which are now memoirs.
