November Already?


I almost forgot I had a blog (or two)! No, in all seriousness, I’d fallen behind in keeping the pocket of time of sharing a pondering, photo or poem.

As you can see from the banner above, it’s that time of year again! And, alas, I’m doing this year’s novel completely blind and unprepared.

Luckily, I’m not doing this alone. The Snoqualmie Valley Region – 58 writers strong! – has the wits sharpened and the inner critics banished as we are going to be ‘Cloaked in Mystery’ this go-around. And the upcoming fun is made possible by the amazing co-ML (and author of one of the most enjoyable adventure stories of late!), Quinnleeeee!

How about you? Are you letting your story, your muse take flight?

Saturday Snapshot


On the Trail – August 2016

“To hell with circumstances: I create opportunities.” ~ Bruce Lee

A friend and I had a chance to go to the Wing Luke Museum to see the second year of the Bruce Lee Exhibit: Breaking Barriers before it closed. Looking forward to the opening of Year Three (the final piece).

It was amazing to discover just how many barriers Bruce broke, especially during his time in Seattle. Inter-racial marriage, teaching kung fu to women, gathering students from other forms of fighting and creating a sense of unity, to name a few.

And here we are, still breaking barriers. What breakthroughs have you been a part of or are prepared to start?

Friday Fast One



I lost logic somewhere along the year. As for goals that really matter to me, too many are not quite so near. And then you hear the one odd mark – ‘It’s Thursday; why are we having fun?’ (The better question is ‘Why not?!’) Follow this with a stare at the stacks and ask ‘Will I really get anything done?’

On a jolly note (happiness is paydays), the goal has been reached for me to climb the Space Needle. Add to that a perfectly timed quote shared:

“The secret of success is constancy to purpose.” ~ Benjamin Disraeli

So now to stumble back on track, time to gain that confidence back!

What bounce-backs have you gone through so far this year?

Wednesday Words

Sometimes, messages shared from some commercials can be powerful – like this one here:

There are a couple of other good ads here and here. Have you discovered any ads that go beyond the product, that offer a positive message?

Boeing Fly-Over 2016

Nearer to the stars
Enveloped in hope
Wrapped in more than it seems

How far will you go to
Enjoy the view
Imagine the limitless possibilities
Great dreamers
Have and nurture over
Time, until, like the
Stars, it’s their moment to shine
