Summer of Streams; Essentials


You know it’s getting personal when clients shoot a text before I arrive for housesitting, “FYI: We’re out of creamer.”

365 Days Of Great Pics Photography, #347-348

Here is number 347… 

Favorite shrub in the fall? It’s gotta be the widow maker, otherwise known as the vine maple. It’s hard to miss. Fire engine red over here, school bus yellow over there. Just small bunches of them, scraggly, sprawling, eye-catching nonetheless. They hog most of the attention come October. Especially along stream banks, clearcut slopes, and raw lava beds. I think of them, in their golden to red colonies, as “Autumn Rooted Impressionists.” 


Here is number 348…

Antelope, Oregon. Once dominated by the Rajneesh. Good times.

It’s really nothing more than a moving vein. Or is it? It carries its own pulse. It moves forward, filling with strength, gaining intensity. If you think about it, it’s not much different than brewing a pot of coffee. And upon further observation, it’s not much different than our emotions. 

This is my 400th post! Exciting or what?

What month is my favorite? That’s a question that I’ve been pondering over and around, kind of like a swift current cutting through a cobblestone creek. I’m guessing October for hues and vibrance, and then perhaps July. Although I’m not completely sure, I’m guessing October is closest to the top. If not the top. Kind of like a maple leaf, before it tumbles, twirls, twists, and somersaults to the carpeted earth, or in this case, stream below.
