Ferries and Fairies

This week family arrives for a good long stay,

so I’m readying guest rooms.

We’ll hunt leafy fairies in Black Dog Hideout,

ride ferries in the San Juans,

and more.

With four we love more than breath,

we’ll cram summer into a sweet package of time

until they fly away again.

I won’t be posting until they do,

but I’ll bring you the pics on July 23.

Until then, here’s a June mishmash for you.



When you fledge in the city . . .

you sit on dumpster frames.

and cars. 🤷🏻‍♀️

(I arrived early for an appointment in Northgate, so went for a walk in a commercial area. Around a corner, this baby—a rock toss from her nest, and oblivious to passersby.)


I bent for a an early morning sniff, nose distance from my favorite floribunda.

“Hold infinity in the palm of your hand…”

—William Blake



“Walk with the wise and become wise; associate with fools and get in trouble.”

—Proverbs 13:20



Then the giraffe stopped by.

“Not all those who wander are lost . . .”

—J. R. R. Tolkien


So glad YOU stopped by, too, friends.
