I finally get to publish my first post, sorry my computer is being wonky!

Home, what does it mean to me?

Home is the rainforest and the ocean. When I think of home, I see the mist on the mountain tops. This is the home of my people, both my beautiful children were born in Sitka. My village is on the west coast of Baranof Island, in the southeast Alaska panhandle. The population is around 9,000 (except during tour season, then it can jump to as high as 15,000 if there are 3 cruise ships in that day) with 2 stop lights and 1 roundabout reflecting our heavy traffic necessities. You can visit, but you have to take a cruise or fly to get there. There are eagles, bears, a volcano, sea otter…clean air and clean water. I love the remoteness. I love seeing the ocean everywhere, every day.

Home is where I am going to go back to when I am finished being a student.
