Seattle Sunset 9/20 7:11 PM; Sunrise Equinox 6:30/6:57 AM


Thick wildfire smoke descends along the West Coast.
It passes here. 
The great RGB passes. 
Another heavy cloud descends. 
Equinox and the seasonal change, bringing changes.

Day 165 Community effort.

Sunset 7: PM. September 2, 2020. Sunset 7:36 PM
San Francisco, CA.

I love seeing friends and neighbors carrying on the tradition while keeping Norman company. The constant bleakness is in such contrast to the places I pass through. It’s weirdly grounding, though. Home.

Resting off the road

Emigrant, MT.


Ringing bells again with Lisa and Will at sunset, just before another delicious meal in the most spectacular venue ever. There was zero wind this evening, so I recorded Will’s bells, while adding a few little tinkly sounds of my own.

At ease- Emigrant, MT

Sunset 7:58 PM. September 1, 2020. Emigrant, MT.
Staying with my sister Lisa and Will for a few days before hitting the road again. Will made those bells- if it's not too windy tomorrow, I'll record them-- delicate and pure tones. Dingdong- M3 doorbell interval
This was sunset from her front yard. You can't see it, but the Yellowstone River runs down there long before you hit those mountains in the distance.

Day 161 bon voyage

August 29, 2020. Sunset 7:42 PM.
San Francisco, CA.


Thank you Bernie, Mardi and Matt for joining us this evening- It was pretty nice – the grey fog MINUS the smoke. I’m looking forward to clearer skies as I make my way across the US. I need to go to New York to see my father-- I am driving and camping out in the backyards of friends and family between here and there— COVID safe as possible.
Norman will continue to hold down the fort here – ringing the big bell on the sidewalk every night. I will also be ringing every sunrise and sunset across the Northern US, sharing them as we share the sky --- (but not with actual daily documentation)😬

Our cat opened the window sometime in the night (yes she can do that—long story) and we woke up coughing from the smoke this morning. The streetlight is on early as it’s darker than usual at this time. Greetings from both of us!
