|About This Website
This website is about the
avocations I enjoy incluing wilderness hiking, nature
photography and haiku-genre poetry (haiku, haibun and haiga).
Computer technology and the Internet combine to make
a forum for ordinary people to share aspects of our lives and
to express a creative impulse.
Throughout the various pages on this site, there is a
conservation theme. I have a strong concern about the disappearance of
species on our Planet, about the contamination of air, land and water
and about the failure of my three levels of government, The City of
Edmonton, The Alberta Provincial Government, and the Federal Government
of Canada to take the strong and necessary steps to prevent further
erosion of our special places and the species that require those spaces
for their continued existence.
Thus, I have provided images of some of
the beautiful places that I have been priviliged to roam as a way of
saying, "Let's protect these places and add some more like them before
its too late."
