The lifelong struggle..
"That’s why I write, because life never works except in retrospect. You can’t control life, at least you can control your version."
One day, I will stand face to face with Autumn Rhythm. One day I’ll be in close proximity of chaotic perfection like I’ve never experienced before. I’ll stand in awe and I won’t move until I’m removed.
“When I say artist I don’t mean in the narrow sense of the word—but the man who is building things—creating molding the earth—whether it be the plains of the west—or the iron ore of Penn. It’s all a big game of construction—some with a brush—some with a shovel—some choose a pen.” ~Jackson Pollock
I dream of an entire garden of grape hyacinths… my favorite of all Spring flowers. The gorgeous white tulips are just a bonus that remind me of the Skagit Valley fields of Washington!
Oddities of Manzanita, Oregon: the Mysterious Arch of Neahkahnie - The looming presence over the the north Oregon coast town of Manzanta, Neahkahnie Mountain, holds a huge array of secrets
Today’s doggy adventure was to Neahkahnie Beach. A beach just south of Harvest Moon Cottage that’s fascinated me since forever. Shipwrecks, pirate coves, rumored hidden treasures… the most fantastical of beach lore ever created, condensed into one little mountain pass area. If you don’t stop by the viewpoints above or the beach below, and choose to venture the ancient pathways along the mountain, you risk dangerous, terrifying goat trails and cliff drop-offs enough to make high-angle rescue teams queasy, at every turn. Locals have long been convinced that any secrets hiding there, are doomed to be kept from prying eyes forever.

The only thing that comforts me about this stupid time change, is my excitement about St. Patrick’s next week. I cannot wait to make our family’s traditional Irish stew and REAL soda bread (no Spotted Dog grocery store knock-offs please!) and drinking my body weight in Guinness, all with friends and family!
I haven’t posted anything Goo Crew in a while (cause dammit, I’m still mad at them!), but today’s “Holy 90’s flashback, Batman!” happened by accident. All my jeans are dirty and I’m not the quickest with the laundry turn-around.
All I need is a Dr. Pepper and Cool Ranch 3-D Doritos for lunch and I’m back in high school!
