Tinder by Ubhejane
Bone-dry forest all over Vancouver Island at the moment is causing severe forest fires - usually sparked by unthinking people chucking cigarettes out of their car windows. The smoke lingers in the air and creates this orange haze which is most intense around sunset. Taken at Westwood Lake, Nanaimo
How things have changed since my last post! And in a good way - having completed the brutal board conversion exams I am now fully licensed to practice in Canada and the US. Visas are on their way and I'm looking at a few jobs around coastal BC. Outrageously exciting but also phenomenally stressful at the moment!

Artistic projects have been sporadic as a result and mostly seem to focus on photography. We haven't been away as much to new and exotic destinations recently but we did manage to squeeze in a delightful trip to Sicily (eating capital of the Universe), see some erupting volcanos (as evidenced in the gallery), as well as an unexpected jaunt to Las Vegas for part of the conversion exams. Once through them I have to say there are few places as good as Vegas for a post exam celebration!

It'll be strange to leave the UK - not least the family will be further away - but the world is just too interesting to live it all in one small place. And what is life without a new challenge?

Also I am currently building a tracklist with a folk song from every country in the world (plus some autonomous regions with distinctive music such as Hawai'i, Sapmi and Puerto Rico) - this is an awesome adventure and provides some upbeat cultural blending at a time when the world seems determined to be trying to raise barriers against one another again.
