I am grateful for the time I’m able to take to go to Valdez, Alaska, and be among the brilliant, funny, quirky, energetic collection of actors, directors, designers, caretakers, and the audience who gather there for eight days to celebrate playwrights and our craft.  It is exhausting and exhilarating: twelve hours in three flights to get there and then get home, but worth every minute, even if the route is unexpectedly circuitous.  I took over a hundred pictures while I was there, and not just of people.  Yesterday when everything was over and we had time to kill, three friends and I took a mile-long hike along the Dock Point Nature Trail just east of the town to see just a little bit of what that vast Last Frontier has to offer in June.

And in the end… the road home from the Valdez Convention and Civic Center after the last event.  It’s not goodbye; it’s intermission.
