Hi Hubbers-Many Thanks for reading my hubs. I appreciate your comments and suggestions for improvment.

I was excited to learn that my hub

Carving a Native Kwakwaka'wakw Totem Pole with Rupert Scow

was chosen as hub of the day. Thanks for this honor.

Also Thankyou HubNuggets readers for voting me first for for my hub about learning wood carving:

"Carving Native Masks from Wood."

And second for my hub "The Skirt"

My name is Marsha Ablowitz.In the 1960's I studied creative writing at the University of B.C.and realised it wouldn't make me rich. However I learned the joy of telling a good story.

I'm a retired psychiatric social worker living in the rainbow city of Vancouver B.C. and travelling the world exploring new countries new mountains. I'm happy hiking, writing and wood carving mainly using my knives and gouges on red and yellow cedar to carve lots of chips.

My favorite topics:

adventure trips, short stories, wood carving,

I have posted chapters from my draft sci fi novel including:

Dal and Chandra, Last Life on Earth Dal meets Ran
