Oh, life's been beautiful indeed. Far from perfect,  but every day I count my blessings understanding the fragility of this messy, chaotic world. I hope all is well on your end too, dear reader. It's crazy times out there, but I have encountered plenty of good souls, love and peace to have faith. Be the light!

Didn't realize there was a term for 'taking in the forest atmosphere.' Wash your stress away in the forest!

road trip PNW

Mixing business and pleasure... I've been trekking up north from San Francisco, finally landing in Seattle. I've neglected this blog for a long, long time, but as I am riding solo I find myself with plenty of time on my hands....

East of Seattle, lies Snohomish County a forest with gravel roads and beautiful trails that I claim all to myself. The beauty of the PNW is beyond words, but I can't wait to head back home!

palette/palate at soex

Happy February, adieu to the month of Janus. No more looking forwards and back. Resolutions? Already a poof in the air, but goes to show that I didn't really make any...

It already feels like spring, and in ancient Japan it is "Earth wind melts the ice" time of the year. (Japanese microseasons are my new favorite thing).
Myself, i'm living day to day, trying to soak in all this beautiful world before our apparent ultimate demise....

joshua tree love

Eek! I've been neglecting my beloved little blog. Wish I could say i've been too busy adventuring, but those days have become far and between. Different adventures lately I suppose.... dove into a new livelihood these past few months.
It was scary to take the leap into new terrain, but i've grown to love the scary, uncomfortable path...
Happy 2016!!!!
