During the summer of '07 I returned to my home state Alaska to work on the F/V Atlantico. I spent a summer ferrying salmon from smaller boats to the canary. For reasons that are too personal to post here it was a strange coincidence that we kept returning to Alitak fishery out of all the seafood processing plants around Kodiak Island and Prince William Sound. It's possible that Alitak had an air of familiarity because it reminded me of my other home - sunny California!

Some furniture designs by iconic French fashion designer Pierre Cardin. In a New York Times interview he states that he was never able to sell his furniture because of the high cost of production. "I would buy the tree and cut the wood and I made the drawings from beginning to end, all made in my house."
I also liked, "Fashion is everything, if you stop the fashion you stop the cities, there are no more cities."
