Anamaki - Shortly before her death in June of 2018 Alice Vartanian King came up with the name "Anamaki Chronicles" for a book subtitled "Stories that Need Tellin'" that she was writing with husband Wayne. She told us that the word was derived from an ancient word in both the Algonquin and Persian languages roughly translated to "Purposeful Hope" or "Determined Hope".

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”~ Hunter S. Thompson
