What a day! We took time off from our work around the property and drove up to Artist’s Point overlooking Mount Baker and Mount Shuksan. WOW! I wish there were a better word to use for such splendor, but in the presence of such magnificent scenery, that’s all I could say. The air was so clear; it made the colors on the mountains look as though they had been enhanced…like when a plain picture is photo-shopped so it looks kind of fakey.


The magnitude of the mountains is impossible to grasp. I felt like the tiniest speck in their presence. Pure white glaciers hanging on the granite peaks almost hurt my eyes with their intensity. Ravens soaring on the updrafts floated right by us as we walked along the trail. The crowds of people appeared to be awestruck and looked around with shining eyes and smiles. A quiet, respectful reverence filled the entire experience. What a world we live in! And how blessed we are to have eyes to see it.

Since retiring from Northwest Airlines and moving to the Pacific Northwest, I have more time to devote to writing. My first novel, "Tales of Two Sisters" was published over a year ago. I have been writing poetry for a long time and am attempting to collate my poetry into a short book, with pictures. A sequel to "Tales of Two Sisters" should be getting closer to completion soon. Gardening and tending the vineyard take a lot of time in the summer. Even though I love the outdoors, these activities do cut down on my writing. So I appreciate that wintertime allows me time to write. Writing, for me, is what brings things into focus and helps me to make sense of the things that life brings. It is a gift to me and I hope that it will be to you also.
