and went with Leaf and Maya, again, into Glacier this summer. still continue to imagine some way of creating images that will somehow lead us to think about, understand the enormous and violent contradictions that we somehow just try ignore. My son is still out in Madison trying to figure out how rocks think (GeoPhysics / Psychology, when he's in college) and my daughter's back in Sweden with her mom right now . . .
