Wolverine Pass, Kootenay National Park, Canada, 2000 x

Wolverine Pass, Kootenay National Park, Canada, 2000 

My favorite camp site in the world is Wolverine Pass.  I spent several days camped in this pass while I photographed in Kootenay National Park. Isolated, yet protected, this poacher's gateway into the park provided a place where I shed my tent and took off on day trips to photograph points further; leaving at dawn and returning at dusk.

You took your picture of me on the set of my play ReFuse in 2017, so I have a quote from that, or rather two -- I prefer the second of these two, but if it's too long for your layout, the first is fine. Both spoken by the same character, The Engineer-Detective:

Once there was a Mother, and once there was a Father. There was something about this that made the units work. Can you do the math? There’s a problem here.
For every problem there’s a solution. 
And I held the solution in the palm of my hand.
My weapon was a tool of destiny, and I could fire individual events of creation with the slightest touch. It was easy, then, justice. And I had cornered the market in my corner market.
So I pulled the trigger, and a new world oozed onto the floor. 

Reaching one person is reaching an entire world. A hand pulls, and a step is taken. One more day, one more night. Voices in the air. The change occurs. We are altogether the same and in solitary we find the differences that matter. Just the attempt makes for a happy ending. The attempt is a heroic act. My hands are big enough to hold so many, to pull so many to the next step. I want to be joined in this. Voices in the next room. Has this ever happened? Every day. A reason to be in the room. It’s a job. The ethic is in the action. I’m a romantic. Futility makes strength. Get lost. I’m in it for the long haul. These decades are only a start. Voices from outside, and one could be mine. I’ve finished my homework. Lost. Open hearted and newly washed clean, I move forward. One could be mine.
