If a Tree Falls in a Windstorm, Does It Make a Sound?

By , December 29, 2019

Sometime Friday night, or more likely, early Saturday morning, a tree fell in the homestead compound. We heard a lot of crashing in the night, mostly from snow getting blown off tree branches above our roof. But, we didn’t hear the tree fall.

It had leaned from the hill above the cabin for as long as we can remember. Likely, it was leaning when we first saw the place. It finally fell in that night’s wind storm, falling across the trail that enters our dooryard, hanging up on the railing to the outhouse.

In fact, it almost blocked the way to the outhouse, which we found problematic. Necessity and experimentation proved we could get around it and into the outhouse, but we needed to move it off the trail!

Life Drifts Back on Track

By , November 4, 2019

We closed The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) yesterday (see All The World’s a Stage). We had a good, three-performance run. As seems typical of plays not put on by the established theater community in Haines, we had rather sparse attendance, but those who came and stayed left feeling entertained, apparently. We sure had fun!

Now, with the All Hallowtide decorations put away, I’m ready to face that ephemeral idea, “normal” life (see Winter Has Come).
