Richard, Cynthia and Anita Miller, 1955

I just got this precious photo from my older sister, and figured it’s worth sharing. It made me reflect on how adventure runs in our family. My parents spent their early years above the Arctic Circle in Allakaket, Alaska.,_Alaska

My mother, being a nurse, would take a dogsled across the frozen river to deliver babies — all while expecting me herself (wearing a beaded fur coat with a wolverine hood, made by locals.) The toddler in the photo is my older sister Cynthia. I’m in my mother’s tummy!
