grapes from my Mama's yard
Every direction I turn in these days, I'm reminded of love and patience.  Any and everyone worth having in our lives is worth our patience.  So here are some musings about patience...

Patience is slow,
it takes time,
it comes when it's ready - 
when you're ready
to take a minute,
stop your running,

Start Shopping!

I just went to a website with dresses on it and right away this box popped up - SIGN IN! 

I just wanted to look... I didn't even have time to decide if I was interested in anything I saw and you already want me to sign in? 

Big turn-off.  No thanks.

Processing, Processing...

Processing, processing... My status bar is moving as fast as when you stare at the screen, hoping that your staring will get the number to change and the bar to fill up.  The more you stare, the slower it inches across.  Downloading, uploading, updating, saving - in progress.  That's me: in progress.

Superior DONUTS at The Bathhouse!

After traveling all around the country and meeting so many wonderful people in amazing spaces, it's exciting to discover and share some of the gems in my own backyard right here in Seattle.

Strolling around Green Lake on a pristine afternoon, admiring ducks and reflections and the vivid fall colors against a blue, blue sky, still trying to figure out how to slow down without crashing, I ran into none other than writer, actor, and renaissance man, Cole Hornaday!  And Cole took me on a tour through a small, unassuming brick building I had passed many, many times - a little treasure that is the Bathhouse at Green Lake.  Won't you join us?
