By reading my blog you give me the opportunity to do the work I love to do, that is talk about life and its various aspects.
I know, wandering around is one of the things I do best, so I thank you for respecting my voice while I do it.
I’m a seeker, and I figure that you, being here, must be one too.
They say we didn’t come into this life with a manual on how to live it, but what if in our wanderings, we find one.
Blogs are for dreamers, travelers, Mom’s, Dad’s Grandma’s (I’m one.) and anyone with
fingers to push the keys. (Whoops I know a paraplegic
who speaks his blog.) So there you have it, it’s for anyone who wishes to
And for us, the reader, to find those blogs that add
value to our lives.
Don’t you hate it when someone tells you they have
achieved the very thing you have spent hours, days, years working for, and they
did it with both arms tied behind their backs?
Like, that’s supposed to inspire us?
Or, of course, we can choose not to believe them.
And for you
artists, adventurers, explorers, wonderful people out there, remember the process is the
thing.Yeah, yeah, I know, you want to make money—actually
you have to make money or you’ll starve, but regarding your art, think of it
this way. The end result, the artifact, is the icing on the cake. Didn’t your
juices flow when you were traipsing down the path toward your goal?
Gosh, I loved Serena
Williams’ exuberance when she won the Wimbledon.
That girl knows how to celebrate!When you win, take it from Serena.
Tomorrow I’m driving
from Eugene Oregon to Hood River Oregon. I’ll
be staying at a motel there, and on their site is an ad that for $65.00 you can
get a morning tour of the Columbia River Gorge and Multnomah Falls. Multnomah Falls is one of my favorite
places. On my way to Hood River, I will
drive right past it.
But, if you start at Hood River, you don’t
need to spend 65 bucks, for if you drive West toward Portland, you’ll be
driving through the Gorge, and right beside the freeway will be Multnomia
Falls. No tour needed.
Even if you rent a car, you could do it for less than $65.00.
When you get to the
Falls, get out of your car and walk up and across the bridge that spans the
falls. It is breathtaking. . Jo
