Wertfrei Wednesday: Happy Anniversary to Me


WordPress just notified me that I registered four years ago today for this blog. Over the years it's been through a few transformations, starting off as a writing blog, then covering past subjects from different networks I had previously belonged, finally changing to being a base for all my books, writing and 'happenings', plus keeping … Continue reading Wertfrei Wednesday: Happy Anniversary to Me

Something Bold, Something New


  Good Morning all, the sun is beating down over Belltown, got the blinds shut.  There can be too much of a good thing. Got my mug O'Roast and enjoying the time. Thinking of stopping several of the daily blog posts, finding They are time consuming and They aren't bringing in any new readers/subscribers/followers, Not … Continue reading Something Bold, Something New

Happy Humpday: Visions


  Visions - The old view from my apartment in Seattle, Washington. Gorgeous view, wouldn't you agree?  You can see forever, but as in life, visions change.  There are now 20 and 40-story skyscrapers blocking all my views now.  At first I was upset that my forever vision was now defunct and I didn't think … Continue reading Happy Humpday: Visions

Happy Humpday: Historic Decision for Equality


  Never thought I would see A Supreme Court of the U.S. give gays and lesbians equality with straight Americans.  Never did I imagine that 13 states would grant gays and lesbians the legal right so freely given to a majority of Americans.  Never did I think I would live to see gay and lesbian … Continue reading Happy Humpday: Historic Decision for Equality

Happy Humpday: Fun and Frolic


This was taken a few years ago at a pierside restaurant down on the Seattle waterfront in a bayside cafe. They had applied this on all the posts inside their cafe with different sea-themes.  I thought this was a cute reminder to don't forget to explore life, have new experiences and have fun. We often … Continue reading Happy Humpday: Fun and Frolic

Happy Humpday: [Colors] The Experience Music Project


The Experience Music Project in Seattle, Washington One of the amazing visual treats of the building is the ability to change colors with the sun, clouds and so on. In this picture it appears, white, red and blue. Sometimes it is a dark, matte red or reddish-brown.

Happy Humpday: Viewpoints


This was taken from the end of the Bell Street walkway, looking southeast over Bell Harbor Marina and Downtown Seattle.  Belltown has a 'rough and tumble' reputation in The Emerald City, however, it is the first neighborhood I moved to in 2008. I like the 'hood, there are plenty of different types of restaurants, some … Continue reading Happy Humpday: Viewpoints

Humpday pic: Surreal Life


  Walking around the local community garden this past week, the Belltown Pea Patch, and saw these gorgeous Calla Lillies. I at first thought they were Orchids.  Regardless of their name, the setting was perfect. Lightly raining, bright overcast skies giving the area a surreal look and feel. Life at times feels surreal.  You know … Continue reading Humpday pic: Surreal Life

Happy Humpday: Going in Circles


Seattle's Ferris wheel, picture taken by me, Fall 2012. Gray days and going in circles.  Sometimes life feels like one big Ferris wheel, going in circles, stuck in a rut, going nowhere fast. But look on the other side: You're in familiar territory, you get to see the highs, you know how to deal with the lows. … Continue reading Happy Humpday: Going in Circles

Happy Humpday: Wallace Falls Forest


Snapped this picture with an older smartphone in 2009.  There were fallen trees with moss growing on them, hanging down with sunlight streaming through the upper canopy of taller trees. The hike was moderate, easy trail but long. No dropoff's, clearly marked, easy enough for most anyone but not cane or walker-recommended. Seeing the dead, … Continue reading Happy Humpday: Wallace Falls Forest
