Editor's Note Vol 3: Iss 2

When I think of the contributions in this issue, the thought that comes to mind is reflection. The written pieces tell stories of life moving forward and stories reflecting on life past; stories of pain and suffering and of letting go of too much too soon; the reflection of the life of a beloved parent, an addict, and those contemplating retirement—even a story of the serendipity of the unexpected desire for a shot of tequila.

The visual art pieces highlight the hands of a surgeon, the hands of an athlete, and the "hands" of an eagle; a shoulder series, and an inviting autumn day.

White-Tailed Eagle, Rausu, Japan


This winter I traveled to Japan and the northern island of Hokkaido. It was quite an adventure. I photographed Steller Sea Eagles, Whooper Swans, Red Crested Cranes, Snow Monkeys (on the main island), and White-Tailed Eagles. This photo of a White-Tailed Eagle was taken as it landed on sea ice outside of the port of Rausu.
