Flotsam

So... Long time, no see! Between bad weather (being snowed in with no power for 2 days in January) and just general life stuff, the blog has once again taken a back seat to... well, everything. In an effort to rectify that (at least to a small extent) I thought I'd post a snippet of… Continue reading Flotsam

WellREAD and The Wonder of Witches

Last weekend I was sick with a cold, and because I was sick I turned on the tv and thereby caught this program about books, WellREAD, on OPB (Oregon Public Broadcasting).  I’m always excited to find a show about books, and it was doubly exciting to come in on a show discussing books on witches… Continue reading WellREAD and The Wonder of Witches

2016, We’re Counting on You

I gave up making New Year's resolutions years ago. Generally, it seems a week into the new year most are already forgotten. It's not that I don't have goals, but sometimes the resolutions I've made were not all that intrinsic to my interests or that important in the long term. Lose weight? Sure. Exercise more?… Continue reading 2016, We’re Counting on You

November Collection

I can't believe it's been a whole month since I posted anything. I threw in the towel on NaNoWriMo again. I've been sick for a week and it sort of took the wind out of my sails. I'm about 10,000 words into a new thing, my first attempt at a YA novel. But fear not,… Continue reading November Collection

Super Blood Moon – September 27, 2015

SO. I had all these grand plans of driving up a local mountain to watch the eclipsed moon rise behind Mount Hood across the valley, and this was the view: Grrr. Argh. Unbelievable haze. It was kind of a circus up there, too. I passed one area that must have had 100 cars parked in… Continue reading Super Blood Moon – September 27, 2015

Around the ‘hood and beyond

Just a few more recent pics. Here's the nearly-full moon on June 30, and the Venus-Jupiter conjunction that same night (basically the moon was to the south, and I turned around to face west-northwest to see the conjunction). The brighter of the two planets is Venus. Even though Jupiter is MUCH larger, it's so much… Continue reading Around the ‘hood and beyond

Rising Moon

Took me awhile to get home last night. I kept stopping to take pictures of the rising full moon. Not quite sure how I got the colors in the first one, but I like the way it turned out. Also, I've changed to a new WordPress theme (AGAIN). This one lets you put social media… Continue reading Rising Moon
