Another full moon... 'The moon when all things happen'
I head down to the water's edge where I look for rocks. The place where I go has every color except for blue. While there I can see across to the Olympics and over to Lopez. Sometimes, if I'm lucky, I see the graceful little otter family, a seal or two and maybe a woodpecker, eagle or owl. I always see the deer.
This is the place where the madrones hang out discussing dance moves and the cedars watch over everything. On a warm day the mix of cedar, pine and fir cooks up a heady aroma that is addictive. I can never get enough.
I look back on my life and thank myself for moving here. It is one of the moves I would not change. I am grateful every day.
The Salish Sea is a magic place that is rich with life and deserves our respect. I hope we manage to keep it thriving.
Things are happening. I'm paying attention.
