There's always something wonderful just out my back door.


September 28th 2016 The Royal Visit: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attend a street party in Whitehorse Yukon. Prince William approached me looked me straight in the eye and said, "I suppose your hands are cold too!" I laughed and he shook my hand. I always knew my prince would come.

Crowds on Main Street Whitehorse. It's zero degrees this morning but no one cares.

The Duchess of Cambridge is clearly a hit!


Prince Williams approaches an elder hoping he'll say hello. She'll remember this forever.

After I took this picture Prince William spoke to me. It's not every day a future king shakes your hand. The most gorgeous blue eyes!

November 12 2016: "discovery" a poem that was recently published in an article by NUVO Magazine.

*Inspired by the image of a life-sized carving that portrayed an aboriginal man crouched in a forest to behold the first European footprint in North America, I wrote the following poem.


"discovery" – ©PJ Yukon October 1992




within the forests

of an old

and northern nation

a lone warrior

spent with tracking

pauses in the wind

to kneel among ferns

and cast an eye

upon the print

of one so foreign

that the wisdom

of millennia

and even the bones

of his ancestors

cannot comprehend

August 8th 2016: I had a great time on my recent trip to the bright lights of the B.C. Lower Mainland, 'The Big Smoke'. It's an adventure to visit the big city but I'm always happy to return home to the Yukon. A few highlights of my trip.


I met up with the folks at Poetry New West. Made some new friends and reconnected with others!

Pleased to share some creative compositions.

I enjoyed my stay at the RiverRock Hotel & Casino.

I went into Vancouver to play for awhile.


Rode a bike around Stanley Park played hide n' seek.


Back home to the Yukon. Ready - Set - Yukon River!                                 








Some things just feed your soul!  

And back home in my studio. I had so much fun I just might compose a song.


On July 24th 2016 I was invited to join the folks down at Poetry New West in New minster B.C. Here is a selection of me sharing a few of my creative works on that afternoon. ~ Videos courtesy of Ken Ader 'The Video Guy'.
