I caught a glimpse of the heritage of the Natives of Southeast Alaska, when visiting. The Sealaska Heritage Center is a small museum in Juneau that features the history and art of the Tlingit Haida people. The Sealaska motto is “Heritage Forward - We honor our ancestors and pave the way for the future by making heritage a living thing.” *
“If a man walks in the woods for love of them half of each day, he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer. But if he spends his days as a speculator, shearing off those woods and making the earth bald before her time, he is deemed an industrious and enterprising citizen.” — Henry David Thoreau
“As soon as there is life there is danger.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson
“There’s something about arriving in new cities, wandering empty streets with no destination.
I will never lose the love for the arriving, but I’m born to leave.”
― Charlotte Eriksson,
“Wandering re-establishes the original harmony which once existed between man and the universe.” ― Anatole France
