Waiting Winter Dock - Polson, Montana

“If the highest aim of a captain were to preserve his ship, he would keep it in port forever.” 

(Unless he lived in snowy climes....but let's stick with the bigger idea & imagine a sunny and romantic southern port!)

Passing View - Near Lakeside, Montana

“Outside the window, there slides past that unimaginable and deserted vastness where night is coming on… across, it would seem, half a continent, where live only bears and shooting stars and the wolves who lap congealing ice from water that holds within it the entire sky
All white with snow as if under dustsheets, as if laid away eternally as soon as brought back from the shop, never to be used or touched.“

― from Nights at the Circus by Angela Carter

Snow, Shadow, Sky - Missoula, Montana

“Most people think that shadows
  follow, precede or surround beings or objects. 

The truth is that they also
 surround words, ideas, desires, deeds, impulses and memories.” 
- from The Fifth Son by Elie Wiesel (1928-2016)
