Youth can often be mysteriously influenced by art

Some of us growing up in the early 1950s in Enumclaw didn’t have what I would consider “cultured” introductions to the arts.

Neighbors were few and far between on farm | Jean Gillespie

One time dad went to “the shack” to work. He went alone with the horses and wagon and took his dinner. Some of us kids usually went with him on these trips but this time we chose to stay home.

Alaskan wilderness adventure provides beautiful memories to last a lifetime

It was late in the day and the marshlands stretched for miles, with shallow channels leading in numerous directions, draining away the last of the salt water before low tide. Trudging across the mud flats, my kayak sliding easily behind me on the slick surface, I kept my mind on high alert. I’m tired and alone. Cold and hungry. Can’t make any mistakes here. The Forest Service cabin peeked above the tall grass and after 10 hours of steady paddling through rainsqualls, the cabin, with a woodstove and dry wood, was all I craved for the day’s efforts.

Getting blood pressure checked often can help head off a variety of health problems.

Stroke warning signs are easily detected

Stroke, also called brain attack, occurs when bloodflow to the brain is disrupted. Disruption in bloodflow is caused when either a blood clot or piece of plaque blocks one of the vital blood vessels in the brain (ischemic stroke), or when a blood vessel in the brain bursts, spilling blood into surrounding tissues (hemorrhagic stroke).

Sometimes God’s will gets tested

I’m reading this passage that says “accept all authority – the king as head of state and the officials he has appointed…It is God’s will that your good lives should silence those who make foolish accusations against you” while I’m waiting for the final inspection by the electrical inspector. So when she comes in and starts taking off all the covers, getting out the ladder and climbing up in the crawl space, looking behind the panels and being incredibly thorough, the electrician looks at me with a kind of worried expression on his face and whispers, “man, she’s tough.” And I’m fine with that because I’m not the electrician.
