Mile Zero :: My very first blog entry. Ever. June 20, 1994. Published on my first blog --originally called The eJournal -- in 1995, 2 years before the word "blog" was coined. An idea conceived as I sat in the departure lounge just steps away from Bill Reid's statue, "The Spirit of Haida Gwaii". Very appropriate. Bound for Australia for the beginning of an 8 month odyssey through Oz, Thailand, Malaysia, Japan and America. Everything begins here.
