TRACY ARM-FORD’S TERROR

"My favorite speech in the play [Blue Bear] is the small monologue that we called Lynn's Aria. It is a moment when while they are looking for the Glacier Bear in Endicott Arm and he turns to the audience and says, ‘He’s right. I do love this place. I love it fiercely for its power of recovery after being scalped down to bedrock by ice or violent tsunamis. I love it for the power it shows us in the weight of its rain. I love it wildly for the songs it sings in the voice of a whale’s breath or the rusty tracheal trumpetings of a flock of cranes. I love it for its turbulence and eagerness and I love it when it storms or is calm. Sometimes in the spring, when the new green leaves and first delicate blossoms are aching into bloom, I love it the way a dog loves to ride in the back of a pickup truck and I want to run side to side barking and flapping my tongue.’. He’s talking about Southeast Alaska. He’s talking about my time in Tracy Arm-Ford’s Terror."
