Another Splendid Sunday

Another gorgeous day to climb the 832 stairs of the Space Needle! More than 2,000 people took on the challenge to help fund the finding of a cure – one step at a time.

Met some amazing people there: a wonderful woman celebrating her one-year anniversary of being cancer free, a family of four who decided to go up the stairs twice today, and good friends seeking adventure to name a few!

It isn’t every day that you can take in a view of the city from this perspective:

Friday Fast One

6.2.17 Stroll 

While wandering through your ‘day-to-day’
Observe the ordinary beauty along the way
Never know when a gem might go unseen
Discovered now by you, life to a dream
Every present moment is just that
Remember the now before it is past.

Sunday Scene

Between the Stormy Skies – May 2017

Create, if you can
Lively items
Out of
Unbound materials
Dissolving, evolving
Slowly beyond your reach.

Friday Focus


Evening SKy – April 23, 2017 

Let not the clouds overcast your day
Imagination, ingenuity can lead the way
Great things can
Happen when you
Take hold of the spark!

Wednesday Walks

Middle Fork Stroll 2012

Some walks are just needed to drink in the view
Too many items juggled – a soul to renew
Enjoy the time, a different scene from the routine
Patterns to break, discover what exists between
Sameness, silliness, and too much seriousness


Less than five months to prepare for the next climb! How to prepare? A step at a time!

Monday Morning

Rainbow and the Mountain – April 2017

Who can complain about the rain?
When wondrous finds can be gained?
What trouble is it to look to the sky?
Why set your sights low when dreams can soar high!

Marvelous Monday!

Wisp of a Rainbow

Stop! This Way to the Wisp of a Rainbow!

So you just want to go on home
Oblivious to anything but cars

What if you miss out on something great?
Heavens before the stars?
Around you in the constant gray clouds
Tucked in between is the rainbow!

Double Delight

Double Delight! April 2017

Oh, too true
Of a gorgeous view!

Great in scene
Radiant in color
Every now and then a gift
Anyone might have missed it.
Today’s sad/dull days got a lift!
