My Person, Vanuatu, and Nepal

Greg and I – Just Two Ragamuffins

Many of us have that one person in our lives who truly inspires us.  Some of us are even fortunate enough to be related.  I have such a person in my life.  My first memories of Greg are of us playing together in my backyard.  I was somewhere around four or five years old and Greg was a half year older.  In fact, Greg was born on my mom’s birthday, which probably made him her favorite nephew.  And if not, well, he at least always had the title of favorite cousin from me.  Growing up, Greg was the only boy around my age that I ever felt really comfortable being around.  I do have a brother, but we are separated by seven years, him being the younger.  And yes, I have other boy cousins, but they were more like typical brothers; cousins who you visit with at family functions, playing with some of them and barely tolerating others.  Read More…

Time to Get Back to Writing!

It’s amazing how fast time has slipped away.  Following a lengthy family health issue to deal with last Fall, I then spent some time recovering from surgery myself this past Spring.  With all of that behind me, the time has come to try and bring some new Features and posts to the blog!  I hope you all are having a wonderful summer (or colder months if you are around the world farther away!)  It has been exceedingly hot here in wonderful Washington State.  Above 100 degrees for the last two weeks.  Makes my mind a little scrambled, but I am determined to return to the blog and connect with all of you once more!  I am looking for some interesting people and subjects to Feature, so if anyone has any suggestions or connections they’d care to pass on, please feel free!  I’ll leave you with a photo I took from a recent trip to the Oregon Coast.  Enjoy!
