Seven years ago. . .





Where has the time gone?

Food can be comfort

An encounter with the sea

An art experience

A sensuous encounter

The bounty of apple trees

A beautifully plated salad
served at a cafe in Venice

A visual and gustatory feast

An exercise in patience

A St. Patrick's Day ritual

A crunchy taste treat

A tasty dessert awaiting a layer
of sugar and a torch

A promise of things to come.

Living in the Pacific Northwest

I'm biased, I'll admit.
I love the Pacific Northwest.

 Snow geese in Skagit Valley.

 Waves crashing on the Pacific Coast.

 Gig Harbor and Mt. Rainier
with a pink sunset.

 The Space Needle from West Seattle,
with Cascade Mountains in background.

Tulip fields in Skagit Valley.

Pike Place Market.

Seattle from Queen Anne Hill.

Gig Harbor on a sunny day.

Vendors at Pike Place Market.

Wheat fields near Pullman.

Ferry between West Seattle
and Port Orchard.

 Musician at Pike Place Market.

Abandoned barn near Pullman.

The cone of the hot shop of
Tacoma's Museum of Glass
reflected in the window
of a nearby building.

More tulips.

Space Needle from Seattle Art Museum's
Sculpture Park.

Haiku My Heart: Out on a Limb

out on a thin limb
crow scans Seattle's skyline
metal tree supports

It's Beginning to Look a Lot. . .

It's beginning to look
a lot like the winter holidays. . . 
in my case, Christmas.
