The Last Best Chronicles Penn Cove and Coupeville So. Do you smell a change in the air? Me too. Only two posts to this blog in the last year… even I can sense that something’s up. Yup. Must be time to put the ol’ Sagebrush Chronicles to bed, evidently there’s been ’nuff said. What has […]


A Puget Sound Paradise

       A Different Kind Of Paradise           Somewhat separate from the madness of the rest of our country, the Pacific Northwest is a place of diversity, charm and power. From many parts of the state of Washington one can see from a single spot large bodies of water, lowlands, […]


‘Tis The Season…

This bright and sunny morning, a little sparkly new snow on the ground, Christmas music playing in the background, hot coffee at the ready, this is the Montana Christmas I dearly love. Am getting my Christmas fix now so when  I go to Seattle I’ll have already had “my kind of Christmas.” For me, this […]


Form + Function = Reflection?

by SteveHulse on December 1, 2013 · 1 comment

I’m aware that there hasn’t been much sagebrush in these chronicles lately. I had promised you “a view of life, art and the great outdoors. ” Well, upon reflection, I guess I have offered you a view of life and the great outdoors lately, and two out of three isn’t bad, is it? Whatever, here’s […]

Stretching Indian Summer

by SteveHulse on November 18, 2013 · 1 comment

As we all know in the northern hemisphere, winter is long and summer is short. Brilliant, eh? I know… it’s the big reason why more people don’t live up in these parts year round. It’s pretty much agreed that we need one more month of summer weather, and would love two. Yeah, well, good luck […]

Mozart: A New Perspective

by SteveHulse on October 23, 2013 · 0 comments

This is a subject that is very near and dear to me. Anything at all meaningful that I’ve accomplished in this life (aside from Dillon) has been in music, and about music.  Jazz is my first and most enduring love. It has been my chariot, my journey through time, my identity and my therapist. It […]


Home Again

Who of us has not struck out on his own, into the larger world, to explore, experience and learn? Who of us has not then found her way back home, and experienced the unforeseen joy of being back in familiar surroundings, back in their comfort zone, back to where they know who they are, and […]


Symphony In The Key Of B

by SteveHulse on September 10, 2013 · 0 comments

The classical symphonic form is comprised of three movements, sometimes four. In most 3-movement symphonies, the first movement is fairly fast, with at least a primary and secondary theme, both memorable and complex. The 2nd movement is slow and solemn by comparison. The 3rd movement is a fast-moving (and occasionally humorous) piece, sometimes recapping the […]


So You Want To Make Movies…

Photography Then And Now From Wikipedia – Invented in the first decades of the 19th century, photography (by way of the camera) seemed able to capture more detail and information than traditional media, such as painting and sculpting. Photography as a usable process goes back to the 1820s with the development of chemical photography. The […]


The Bucket List

I finally saw the movie “The Bucket List” a few months back. We’ve been aware of the idea of a bucket list since the movie came out in 2007. I never thought much about it, life flows like a river up here in Montana, and we do what we want to do nearly every day, […]
