these surprising things

looking for certain things on certain Antarctic maps you can’t help come across other things that take you off the path like following a colourful buttery fly, or the internet siren…i collected them haphazardly because I couldn’t let them go but also didn’t quite know what to do with them, like a kids bug collection.

i didn’t have time to note who, where or what but i’ll guess from memory, if not apparent. A famous ship named after a woman, something about Christopher Columbus. A Norwegian explorer and the dog he sadly shot or ate but truly did love and appreciate while alive, Frank Wild Party tracks in the snow 1912 pre-end of the road, and a ship called the Jane with a jaunty iceberg.
