We all live in a spiral galaxy like this one, which happens to be the Andromeda Galaxy. Now picture one very tiny planet way on the right edge. Thats where Earth is, our home in the cosmos. Sunday is Earth Day. I hope you will make an offering of something you love to our Mother Earth, to thank her for our lives of which she sustains everyday. And sometimes when life gets too hard, too hectic, remember your part of something incredible, much bigger than you.

Puffy clouds and Pilot Rock in the far distance on a beautiful spring day in N. California. Pilot Rock is part of the Soda Mountain recreation area and included in the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument.

Long before Interstate 5 was built as it relates to N. California, old wagon roads and trails dotted the landscape. The freeway was actually built really close to the route of these old roads and so you get scenes like this. Where a stagecoach road would of crossed without being impeded by the freeway. Don't know if you get my drift but what your looking at is part of the old road now cut in half. The light on it was beautiful.

This is what it looked like yesterday in the Siskiyou Mountains of N. California. We are getting boatloads of rain and more snow in the high country which is turning our beautiful landscapes green. Grateful.

In a few hours we had hail, snow, rain, huge wind gusts, sunshine and a temperature change of over 50 degrees.
Totally crazy in the Siskiyou Mountains of N. California.

For my friend @grannydot16 in Scotland. Here's the pics I promised you of Asante Medical Center in Medford, Oregon. First photo is one of the roads that lead off to other buildings and complexes within this huge campus. Second is not a great photo but the light was strange at this point. This is the beautiful waterfall meditation area that is just below the front entrance of the hospital. Above this are all kinds of beautiful benches where you can listen to the calming water. The third was the view coming home after hitting N. California. The cafeteria was serving breakfast and we had yummy sausage, biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs with cheese. I had a nice hot cup of very good English tea in honor of you and for my own love of it as well. Lots of hugs to you and Malc.

"I don't know you, but I know you well. You came to me, upon the wings of the universe, riding high and in high style. I glimpsed you these days, gazing at me through the windows of my mind, and I caught hold, as you transported me to wild and wonderful places. The world became our magic, and we played in it's mischieviousness. As we travel the roads less taken, or perhaps never taken before, our joy becomes unbounded through all time and space. All of us, each of us, weave our own patterns in the fabric of existence. To find that thread that leads to friendship and bottles of joy, is a gift of words and a gift beyond words. Sometimes, it's something only the heart can feel. And sometimes it was in your words all along."
IN YOUR WORDS

To my young writer friend @archit_nangavaram and to all my IG friends who inspire me everyday with your photos worth a thousand words.

Siskiyou Mountains spring rain.

Inside Shasta River Canyon in N. California. The old stagecoach road is still used by the few people that have gold claims on the river and a couple of houses deep in the canyon. Hoping to get in their soon myself.

This beautiful pouch by @gloriafreshley arrived via mail today and I love it. This is the first handmade item I've gifted myself in way over a year and it was so worth it. She has a much better photo on her IG account and it shows the long adjustable cross body strap that is on it. She recycles amazing materials and adds her own prints, specialized stitching and other techniques to create runners, scarves and other works of art. It also felt good to support another artist and I know many of you support your local community artists as well. Take a look at her beautiful work, I am sure it will inspire you as well. The shadows are from the sun streaming in to give me enough light for the camera to take the photo.
