Alaska Connection

“For years, Alaska had been the territory of my dreams and aspirations. And once I arrived, I wanted nothing else than to feel at home here…..You could watch fronts spinning off the Gulf of Alaska, pinwheeling bands of clouds over the mountains across the bay. People moved to Alaska to find themselves, but also to get lost. The state is a mixture of back-to-the landers and misfits; of people who are escaping a life elsewhere as much as they are embracing the particular one they can find.” (Weiss)
