Moving Forward

These last few weeks have been one of settling down for the foreseeable Alaska Winter and hunkering down accordingly. Work, or at times, lack of work have been the item on the plate to be taken in. That said, minus losing my regular job at Sea Otter, and having to go back out into the world as a freelance carpenter, a couple of interesting things have been going on. First, the book that I am contributor to “Adventure at High Risk: Stories From Around the Globe” is now out. This I am most happy about. I feel honored to be a part of this fine project spearhaeded by Cameron Burns and his father, Kerry Burns. It is a collection of stories from authors abroad, featuring some amazing essays by both renowned authors in the given precip, and by other, unknown chaps such as myself, A good read if I do say so myself. Second… I got paid! I guess that now makes me what might, in some circles, be known as a “professional writer”. This too makes me happy… Also, I have been involved, thanks in every part to my friend Gene, here in Haines, to now be a contributor to the stock video website Pond5. Here is a selection from my artist page: justrollingby. Many thanks to you Gene for helping me out on so many levels! You readers should check out his stuff… He is a talent to be reckoned with! On a side note, thank you all for being patient with Just Rolling By’s slow development these days… There is more in store.   Peace IMG_0215 Adventure at High Risk Payment PSD
