North Country Living
An album

Robin Hopper

When you live in Alaska, your relatives and loved ones are often far away. To compensate, I think that we form our own "families", choosing carefully and slowly over a period of time from the people that we meet. I feel very fortunate to have an Alaskan "family" - a chosen family of the heart. It is to my real family, and to my chosen family that this album is dedicated, in particular, Bruce, Caiti and Grady.
