The view from this new podcast space. Skies are still a bit hazy from the fires and you can see how near the road this is. Still, a nice shady and restful spot for pondering.

The Alaska crew is all here! We’re having a great vacation with my cousin and his wife as we travel by boat to spy eagles and whales.


3 large totem poles against a background of large fir trees.

We learn about totem poles and that it’s actually a GOOD thing to be low man there – as the first carving is the star of the story. Very interesting day.


Mark makes a funny pursed up lip face in front of a dappled green river under the trees. Laurie leans on his shoulder.

Mark employs his funny face making skills as we pose in front of a wild salmon spawning ground in the woods.

You can see from today’s view from the podcast rock, how dried out the underbrush is and why fires are such a concern.

Different wind chimes hang from a curved branch from an old tree in the garden in front of a brick wall.

These are memory chimes in my garden. They hang from our dead plum tree. It shaded us for many years. Its replacement tree grows next to it. Rather than remove the tree, Mark cut it back and we’re growing jasmine up it. These various chimes have many memories. The multicolored one I bought in memory of my Mom who loved rainbows.

Newest BCs

  • I’m excited to feel great about my body
