Yum Yum



China Town, China Town! My new favorite restaurant in Anchorage, Alaska. The service is great. The food is superb. I like everything about this unassuming jewel in the Government Hill neighborhood. I especially enjoyed the dumplings/pot stickers. They are undeniably the tastiest, pillow like, steamed and then fried, delicious delicacy that I have had the pleasure of placing in my mouth in many, many moons. I have eaten many a dumpling in my gastronomic career, but these pockets of spiced pork are the real, deal, Chinese meal. The dumplings are served with a soy dipping sauce with chopped green onions, but you can also ask for the spicy sauce that's a pulverized red chili paste. The complimentary appetizer at China Town is pickled vegetables. Broccoli, potato and cabbage, each one more interesting than the next. I also highly recommend the sautéed, spicy eggplant that was like eating purple velvet. China Town has two menus. One menu for the folks who want Chinese/American, and one menu for those who want world class Chinese Cuisine. Next time we try the crab, which isn't on the menu. You have to know somebody and call days in advance to order. More please! China Town Restaurant, 836 East Loop Road. For more information: 272-8390 or 274-3322.

Wake Up And Smell The Coffee



I study every sign post.
When the sun is out I challenge myself to get out.
Putting down all my projects in favor of a stroll, hike, or climb.
The smell of summer in Alaska is heaven.
Even though my boundaries are sketchy at times,
I am aware that I have grown and have a deeper understanding.
Face it and actualize your dreams.

Little One




Being the messenger is not the easy course.
I take the responsibility to bring word.
Hearing the voices of my loved ones, I jump for joy.
I can take care and share all of my gifts.
Tiny, Little One loves Beauty.
Change it up and begin fresh every day.
Little bit of this and little bit of that.

Beauty Rests




Climbed my mountain yesterday and picked blueberries.
Spotted a moose family and ran in to friends on the trail.
I am blessed.
My dreams are telling me something.
My heart is mending.
Happiness in beauty and today I rest.
Thank you.

Startled by the red
Speckled white with mystery shock

Give Me The Open Road



The Grannies and Elly Maze rocked McCarthy! There were other musicians who also kicked it, but we are 'Children of Rock' making it happen in the wide, open spaces of AK. Thank you B-Mac, Neil, Rebecca, Hollis, Rick, Tres, Ian, Jasmine, Max, Christina, Chris Chester, all the Grannies, their beautiful girls and Hotel Chitina. It was sweetness personified and the rough and tumble weekend brought me closer to my reason to live. First one is what? That's right! Love.
