Breaking news:
We will be moving out of the Blackpoint cabin on December 1st. and relocating to Victoria, B.C. so that V can attend Comosan College. Needless to say, this place has enriched our lives in countless ways, and it feels painful to leave it, but V cannot get the work or schooling she needs up here, and so we go.
Thank you to everyone who visited us here over the last year and a half - especially Kyath, Luke, Rainbow, Miranda, Cody, Jen, Chad and Jim. We feel lucky to have been able to share this place with you.
As of today I will no longer be posting my photos on this blog. There is now a full website devoted to them here. I will continue posting text and miscellaneous images after the move, but the tone of the blog will no doubt go through some changes as we attempt to re-acclimatize ourselves to urban life.
To everyone who has kept up with my scattered attempts to convey what it is like to live up here in words and pictures, thank you. Special thanks to regular readers Chris Brayshaw, Jim Affinito, Kyath Battie and Ben Chatwin.
The year and a half that I've spent in this place have provided me with more memorable experiences than the entire decade leading up to them.

"Because we don't know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well, yet everything happens only a certain number of times, and a very small number, really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, some afternoon that's so deeply a part of your being that you can't even conceive of your life without it? Perhaps four or five times more, perhaps not even that. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty. And yet it all seems limitless."
