Recently I received a note from Robert Fougère telling me about Parading Without a Permit, his upcoming photography show at Collage Collage here in Vancouver. Oddly enough, I had stumbled upon his Flickr account only a couple weeks earlier. He’s got some really interesting stuff.
The opening is 7—9PM on June 9th, and you should come.
Wet, heat, cold, hunger, thirst, difficult travel, insects, hard beds, aching muscles—all these at one time or another will be your portion. If you are of the class that cannot have a good time unless everything is right with it, stay out of the woods. One thing at least will always be wrong. When you have gained the faculty of ignoring the disagreeable thing and concentrating your powers on the compensations, then you will have become a true woodsman and to your desires the forest will always be calling.

Thanks to an ambitious project collapsing, I’ve stumbled upon the geology teaching slides of Dr. Arthur Gibbs Sylvester, a Professor of Geology at UC Santa Barbara from 1968—2004. I studied Geophysics in University, but that was a long time ago, so these were a nice trip down memory lane.
