A day of sunshine in the midst of the rainy season: what a wonderful gift. I was in several neighborhoods of Seattle on this sunny Saturday and everybody and their kids and dogs were enjoying the sunshine. People pushing baby carriages, people jogging by, walking with espressos, sitting at sidewalk cafes, couples walking arm in arm: it seemed like a holiday. I guess it was, holy I mean. Holy as in blessed or sanctified. Funny how a little bit of sunshine can help us to appreciate nature. We need the rain, for where would we be without it? It would be a desert, and I for one can only handle a little bit of time in the desert. That’s why I live in the Pacific Northwest where everything is green—all the time. But I am oh so thankful for a few days of sunshine.

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.
