Ready to go North

I’m ready to go north. Ready ready ready ready ready ready ready ready ready ready ready to go north. North! Where things are green and living and breathing, where water falls from the sky and there are stars at night glistening from above. Where (if you’re in the right place) you can step outside in a t-shirt and shorts and not feel even a tad bit chilly. Chilly will no longer be a word in your vocabulary. Where food is good and fruit is plentiful. Vegetables, too. Leafy and green. Fresh. Where there are more than three types of bird, where birds sing rather than squawk. Where there are kittens and babies and sad-looking dogs and old women and, most importantly, kittens.

I am so very excitedly (and also somewhat apprehensively) looking forward to it.

Both at home and at work I use photos I find on the internet for my desktop background, which I change often with something either seasonal or topical. I've been looking at your ice photos all winter and totally enjoying them. I found your site at the end of last summer, I'm not sure how....and I not only love the pictures, but I really enjoy reading about what life is like at the edge of the world. You do a great job of making me feel like I'm on an adventure too. So thanks, from Liz in Ohio :)
