I need to stop deciding what this blog is – as soon as I do, I feel obligated which then creates resistance – so I don’t add to it. Ergo – I’m just randomly adding things as I feel pulled to do so.

Marla and I went to Eagle Creek for her birthday – the trail just re-opened after being closed for three years because of the fires that tore through area. The Eagle Creek fire was started by a ding-dong kid who threw a firework off the trail. Much has survived and the beauty continues.
