The Adventure Resumes

  It’s been a weird few months. After an incredible adventure in January and February – Lalibela, Ethiopia, then Kenya’s Maasai Mara, then diving in Zanzibar – I came home to (yet another) foot surgery and (yet another) recovery, one I didn’t write much about because I’m getting a little self-conscious about just how many times I reference the fall in Italy that broke these feet, and the way that it has become a point of reference for almost everything in my life.

I’ve made the best use I could of this time off, writing a couple more books (and starting to get self-conscious about how many times I write the words, “So, I wrote another book.”) including A Beautiful Anarchy which has become one of the best-received books I’ve written, and one I’ll be releasing in a few months called, How to Feed a Starving Artist: A Financial Field Guide for Artists, Solopreneurs, and Other Anarchists, a book I finally found the courage to write after this article, Chains All The Same, seemed to hit the nerve it did. I’ve printed some work. I’ve read some books. And I’ve schemed, but most I’ve longed for the day I could, once again, walk again and resume my adventures beyond these four walls.

I’m almost there. I’ve done a couple camping trips in the Jeep (photos above), my ankle wobbly and uncertain, but the rest of me so glad to be out in the wild again and breathing deeply. I did my PADI Dry-Suit course so I could scuba dive in the colder water of the pacific northwest, and I’m doing my Advanced Open Water course at the end of the summer, in preparation for a week of diving up north next spring, to spend time with the giant octopus and kelp forests off the northern tip of Vancouver Island.

In a couple weeks 50 of you are joining me in Vancouver for the Created Image conference. I can’t wait to see some old friends and meet some new ones. Then a couple weeks after that Cynthia and I climb into our Jeep, Emily, and head out for what is planned to be a two and a half month trip across the country to Labrador and Newfoundland on the far east coast of Canada. I’ll be posting as much of my adventure as I can on Instagram – you can find me here – and probably Facebook if I haven’t given up on it entirely between now and then.

In November I’m spending a week and a half with the Polar Bears up north, and I’ve got a few other Canada trips planned as well – all in hopes of another fine-art book of photographs, this time from the country I’ve grown up in and loved all my life, but so seldom photograph. A lot can happen between now and then, but that’s the project that’s driving me right now – bears and octopus and the wild beauty of this astonishing country. I can’t wait to share it with you, both as I travel, and once the work is done.

Thanks so much for your patience. I know the blog posts got a little thin, and on top of that we just keep rolling out books and resources. I value you all so much, and am so grateful to have such a great community to share my work and life with. Thanks for the patience, the adventures are about to resume. I hope you’ll join me.

Making Within The Frame

The original cover concept I sent the publisher. I’m glad they over-ruled me. Six years ago, I got a phone call from a publisher asking me to write a book. The original author had bailed due to health issues, and they wanted to know if I was interested. I wasn’t, but it got my foot […]

Uinta Adventure Pack

This is the new Uinta Adventure Pack from Gura Gear. I’m a big fan of their bags and have been using them for the last 4 years as my work has transitioned to more landscapes and outdoor adventure work. As that transition has occurred, the things I want in a bag have also changed. My […]
