I have been wanting a vardo (i.e., Traveller wagon) since seeing the movie Into the West (1993) again the other day.

Steel Pulse

Steel Pulse is one of the few bands I have listened to consistently for the last 20 years. I was introduced to them by my older brother when I was 15, and have seen them live several times. It is amazing to me how relevant their lyrics are to today's world. The biggest Steel Pulse fans reside in Hopiland. I loved seeing all the young men sporting Steel Pulse t-shirts at Indian gatherings when I lived in Arizona. 

Here is a picture of Mutabaruka (not part of Steel Pulse) visiting a Hopi school from the Reggae in Hopiland site.

San Juan Islands

Visited the San Juan Islands when my parents were in town. What an amazing place!

George Spencer

One of George Spencer's Boxers. He really captures the essence of the boxer in this painting.
