I would probably self-identify as a female rural West Coast (of USA) Caucasian, but that wouldn't include, as labels often don't, my journey from a small monocultural mill town to a solo sabbatical in six countries (in '91). Now I'm on to the exciting sojourn of retirement (from full-time worklife five years ago). I love travel and art and aesthetics, as well as almost all cats and dogs I've met. This blog is just for fun and experimenting with the tools. It should be amusing...

Gathered round the campfire

I like this shot from the door of our 1966 Gillig bus, because it pretty much symbolizes our outlook: be open to meeting new people and enjoying mobile spaces! Even if we're beginning our rainy season, followed by the (crappy) snow season, we're enjoying the home region area despite the recession. Helps to be retired and conserving as much as possible. Hope you are coping well, too.

I like sharing pictures of the places I've been because those experiences shape me and are usually positive. My St. Bernard pet, Heidi, was like a sister to me. Scroll back to some of the earliest blog entries and see some pix from the Fifties. Having Heidi no doubt shaped my love of animals and directed one of my post-retirement activities. What are some of the symbolic shapers of your adventures?
I'd love to hear from you, however you landed on this site.


Welcome to my world, circa Nov.

This month I turn 62. That's proposterous! :=
Life is pulsing...be as happy as you can and do as much good as you can!

What's it like where you are?


Miscellaneous fall scenes and folks

The staff at the Siskiyou Humane Society are a wonderful collection of big-hearted folks who carry their high stress jobs with grace and humor. I like to add scenes from that amazing circus which places lots of pets with love.

Our regional scenery rivals New England's. Right now it's been unseasonably warm, so folks are out walking among the leaves and pumpkin patches. The mountain's got a touch of white lace. Rains this week.
