Sound Bytes #2….”Sound Views from Anacortes”

April 14, 2019

(Photo taken from Mt. Erie lookout point.)

 

In “Sound Bytes (Intro)”, I explained how the idea for this Sound Byte Series was spawned.

I wanted to pair together and share the beauty of the Puget Sound, my favorite place, and the beauty of the musical sound of Lizz Wright, my favorite singer.

In the previous post, “Sound Bytes #1 (Seattle And The Sounds)”, I showcased the Puget Sound area around Seattle, and Lizz Wright singing “Reaching For The Moon”, (my favorite cover of all the covers that she does).

In this post, I share some views of the Puget Sound, from two mountain tops in the Anacortes area, where the Anacortes Ferry Terminal is located, and some views of the Puget Sound from aboard the ferry, while I was on my way to San Juan Island. It’s one of the ways to get to the San Juan Islands.

I also share the musical sound of Lizz Wright, singing ” I’m Confessin’ “, in “Sound Bytes #2”. I know you’re going to like it.

Let Them Talk in Vancouver, B.C.

February 3, 2019

(The photo above was taken in Vancouver, B.C., in front of the basketball courts at David Lam Park with a view toward False Creek.)

 

“Let Them Talk”

From the title of this post, you might have thought I was going to write about some juicy gossip or start a rumor. But I don’t do rumors or gossip.

This is about a weekend trip I took to Vancouver, British Columbia, and about a song called, “Let Them Talk”, which I heard for the first time about three weeks ago.

Sound Bytes (Intro)

December 19, 2018

The Puget Sound is an exceptionally beautiful area around Seattle.

Viewing it with the naked eye, or in this case, viewing it with my eyes “clothes’d” (meaning covered by my eyelids…not naked….”clothes’d”) for lack of a better picture 😩, hyper activates my senses.

I can See the Sound, Smell the Sound, Hear the Sound, and Hear the See…..well,  the Sea. 😁

Success

October 7, 2018

In my previous post, “Autumn Leaves”, I mentioned some old black and white photos I found. They were photos of me and three friends hiking in Yosemite National Park and climbing Half Dome.

On the backs of two of the photos, I discovered “two different thoughts” I had written down on them. I copied the thoughts from cards I saw when I was down on the Monterey Bay pier, just enjoying the day. I think I bought the cards to send to a good friend, at the time, but I liked the sentiment on each card and wanted to remember them, so I wrote them on the backs of those pictures, the only thing I had handy, at the time, to write on, before I dropped the cards in the mail.

In that post, I mentioned only one thought, which was about Autumn Leaves.

But in this post, I’d like to mention the other thought, on the other photo, which was someone’s (it was so long ago I don’t remember the source) idea of what success means.

Everyone will have their own definition of success, of course, but I thought this definition of success had merit.
