Had a great trip north to visit some of the cousins and my Aunt Gayle yesterday and today. Had the pleasure of getting totally drenched in rainy Oregon with Wonder Woman and Word Girl last night trick or treating. It was good to be with family and enjoy the dress up/candy excitement of the little ones. These two still seem to be contemplating the fact that I am the same age as their father (still asking, are you a kid or an adolescent?). I am happy to know they sense my young heart.

Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we will ever do. -Brené Brown
Today I gave a message at the Eugene Mennonite Church and below here is the take away.
I would like each of you to consider if you only had 6 days left on Earth, like Uncle Hal had from the day he admitted on hospice – are you living the life you want to be living? Do those you love and cherish know how you define a good death -for an instance do you want to die at home, amongst family or friends? And, are you in pain? How are you sharing your pain with others? Please do not suffer alone.
I leave you with this…
Grief never ends…but it changes. It’s a passage, not a place to stay. Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith…It is the price of love.
Gorgeous day out today with about 65 degrees and heading towards 74. Today I practiced using HDR with my Nikon D5100 from Kelly Butte looking over both Springfield and Eugene.
Well I chose to retire my Pentax- Kx. I went to take it in to get fixed and found it out it has mold growing in the prism that would cost over $200 to clean. After searching around for my next camera I decided to get a used Nikon D5100 which will allow me to take HDR photos. Looking forward to the new learning curve ahead!
A busy summer this year, amazed August is just about here. Haven’t taken my camera out as much as I’d have liked this summer but I’ve also mostly been working. Looking forward to some photography during some vacation time in September. With a high of 95 degrees today I could tell the heat was getting a bit much for the critters today. Just before leaving for my extra hot soccer game I found our cat Katara sprawled about the piano near the fan.
