Summer

Summer

It’s raining today in “sunny” Sequim – pretty much a downhill slide into autumn. All things considered, the summer has been glorious for us: high temperatures mostly in the 70s and no smoke from wildfires.The Sunday soup is simmering as I consider a theme for this fading summer. And really, there is only one thing that I’ve been utterly devoted to… ROCKS! Until we moved here, I didn’t know how much I love rocks. I mean, I’ve always picked up…

  It seems fitting to launch this site as we relocate to the Olympic Peninsula, a magical land that fills our senses and inspires much of our creative work. We feel at home on this land – calm and grounded. Now, in the Dungeness River Valley, we’ll set up “shop” in the small city of Sequim (pronounced skwim). Surrounded by the Olympic Mountains and the Strait of Juan de Fuca we will indulge many ideas that have been percolating these…
