beach build

I am submitting this to photrablogger’s Mundane Monday #123.

We have a lot of drift wood and both kids and adults build structures on the beach. Eventually a high tide takes them down, but they are often wonderful. I am inside this one, enjoying the blue water and the light color sand.

Good luck to the Eclipse Chasers!

on fire

This is an early morning photograph, downtown, not this year.

It was frightening to fly back from Wisconsin last week and have the plane descend into smoke in Seattle. The smoke from fires in British Columbia and Washington blanketed the city. I am used to descending into cloud, but smoke looks brown and was neither opaque nor transparent. Haze.

I missed the worst air, but the smoke still bothers me. One afternoon my receptionist and I both were having trouble with eye irritation from the bad air. My clinic is in a 1950s building and closing all the windows and doors is hot! No air conditioning.

I am hoping that we make changes to slow and mitigate climate change and global warming: I don’t want the world on fire!

How many summers will it take? My guess is three consecutive summers….

moon love

I love the dark night and the bright day, the moon and the sun, the fire and the water, the love and the grief, the cow and the horse, the dog and the cat, the air and the earth.

Where is the stealthie, you say?

It’s a moon stealthie….the moon is so beautiful.

Joy  today. I am so deeply thankful that this health insurance bill has been voted down. Health insurance because it was not going to improve health care. It would have increased profits and worsened citizens’ health.

Our chorus performed last night and the music is still playing in my head… from a Shawn Kirchner piece. “It shall be well with you…..”

I took this in 2012.
