Sound Bytes #6….”The Finale”

November 11, 2019

This Sound Bytes Series has been a lot of fun for me to put together.

Lizz’s music, the travel and sight-seeing around the Puget Sound, the people I met along the way, and the opportunity to share it all with you.

It’s been all about the beauty of the Puget Sound and the beauty of the sound of Elizabeth Lacharia Wright’s (Lizz Wright’s) music.

I love both sounds.

When I first conceived the idea to do this, I knew I wanted to end the series with an aerial view of the Puget Sound above the San Juan Islands. (It’s at the end of this post….as Sound Bytes #6).

I also wanted to write a song called, “Love At First Sound”, for this final post of the series. (It’s also down below.)

Sound Bytes #4 ….”San Juan Island”

October 21, 2019

San Juan Island is just one of the islands in the archipelago known as the San Juan Islands.

The four main islands, to which people frequently travel, are Orcas, Shaw, Lopez and San Juan Island.

(I got this map from the San Juan Island Visitors Bureau.)

In my last post, (Sound Bytes #5….”Orcas Island (Continued)”, I mentioned that I didn’t leave Orcas Island as soon as I thought I would, to get to San Juan Island. The rainy weather on Orcas delayed me one day. So I essentially had only one day to spend on San Juan Island, to do all the things I wanted to do.

I called ahead to let the front desk people know I would be getting in a little late that night.

Sound Bytes #5….”Orcas Island (continued)”

September 11, 2019

In my last post (Sound Bytes #5….”Orcas Island”), I said that the next post would be Sound Bytes #4….”San Juan Island”.

But after I thought about it, I realized I had to go back to Orcas Island to do a few things I was unable to do on my last visit to the Island. I’m pretty sure #4 🤨 will be next, but…..

Oh well…..I think I can safely say that #4 will be here when you see it. (How’s that for being non-committal?)

I wanted to:

Sound Bytes #5…..”Orcas Island”

July 14, 2019

Last month I intended to visit the San Juan Island, not only for the fun of it but also for the purpose of doing Sound Bytes #4….”San Juan Island”, which I mentioned in a previous post (Sound Bytes #2….”Sound Views From Anacortes”). But I couldn’t get a reservation on the ferry for the times and days I needed to get on it.

So I looked at the ferry schedule for Orcas Island and I was able to get a reservation for the days and times I had planned to go there.

So, I decided to do Sound Bytes #5….”Orcas Island” first.

(So, just so you know, Sound Bytes #4, will follow this one, although it is out of order.)

Let us begin!……

Swish Me Clean

May 30, 2019
“Bask’ing In The Sun” In Chicago by Lake Michigan in August, 2016.

HEAR YE! HEAR YE!

HER MAJESTY’S COURT IS NOW IN SESSION!

Let the court jester begin!…….

Lizz Wright (Her Majesty 😀), my favorite singer of all time (and forever), sings a song, penned by K. D. Lang, called “Wash Me Clean”.

It’s a dreamy tune that sends me to a lofty space where I start dreaming wide awake.

In a previous post called “SHHHH! Genius At Work”! (Unearthing Her Grace), I shared a story about that song and I mentioned how much I like “Wash Me Clean” and how it elevates me to that dreamy state of mind, a place I like to go from time to time. It’s one of those songs that grabbed me and wouldn’t let go. (I am a dreamer, after all.)

One day, I imagined doing a slo-mo video of only swish shots, and pairing it up with Her Majesty’s cover of “Wash Me Clean”.

But the court jester (me), being a jester, dubbed the video “Swish Me Clean”.
