About Me

Adalbert is a forum for me, to post ephemera, photography, poetry, occasional travel notes, and various spontaneous motions. Cover photo: Parsonage where my great-grandfather spent his early years. Taken near Liegnitz, Silesia, ca. 1870.

Indian House: Conflagration Totem


 The totem pole-like chimney rises from the remains of this abandoned house, in the Columbia River Gorge, on the Oregon side, which I have photographed now and again the past few years. Decades ago, I knew the dwellers within, as previously described. Sadly, inadvertently or otherwise, someone set fire to the house sometime in the last year, leaving only scorched walls and a foundation shell, and exploded reminders of a past life.
