Welcome back autumn! My favorite season. I get to wear my sweaters, the leaves turn colors, and all kinds of charming, wonderful things.
I love my family's yearly pumpkin patch outing to the Farm at Swan's Trail, which is my person favorite on this list. The link below takes you to the good folks at Eat, Stay, Love SnoCo. I'm confident you'll find the perfect place to celebrate the coming of Fall.

As a trombonist and tubaist, I'm thinking it would be a blast to pull some other musicians together for a project link this.
Would you come?
It was, and still is, a privilege to be his neighbor.

I haven’t had an objective, much less a strategy on any of my sites. I love to write poetry, about Seattle, about sustainability, geek culture, about so very much. Each site has value to me. I hate the idea of neglecting one at the expense of another. Yet I also hate writing substandard stuff. I prefer to be proud of what I put on the internet.
This time in history has so many choices; a blizzard of potentials and possibilities. And I hate letting go of those potentials. Any of them. Yet I know that must be done to achieve ANY of them. How does one choose which baby to let die?
Perhaps overly dramatic, but it captured the sentiment I’ve been struggling with.

Being the Seattleite, I have a natural dislike for heat. Pushing 90 is well past the zone of comfort. And, even with the abrupt temperature drop of evening, I find it hard to sleep, even in the low 80s. So I'm looking forward to today, with a not quite 10 degree drop, and Thursday/Friday where we drop back into the 70s.

I'm pulled so many ways?
Is that bad?
Or does that tension
Make me bigger?
I don't which is better
For my soul
I am challenged by "focus". When focused, other things must be ignored. Such a painful thing, to give up on interests. Yet I see that by diluting my focus, passions get sacrificed. I've searched for passion, just not very well. I'm pulled this way and that. Unsure which way is true. I've spent so much time eliminating risk that I've never truly considered passion, and how that can fit into career. I still have plenty of work to do.

Not a lot of thought or effort went into this. It was just a thought that tickled my sensibilities.

As I was going through, I started unfollowing those who hadn't posted for more than 3 years. Yes, three years! Seems like a good time to clean house, I guess.
It does make me question the viability of Flickr. Yahoo!'s issues over the past few years have, long ago, made me wonder if they would keep the platform going. And Yahoo!'s fate's not getting any clearer. But, it's still here, and there are still photographers posting merrily along. So, as long as it's not gone total ghost-town, I plan to keep on posting there.
I do post nearly daily to Instagram, mostly with haiku. Then I post some to Facebook, but otherwise, Flickr is the place.
Do you have a preferred photo sharing site? Why do you love it?

Questionsall was my first Twitter handle, and is the title of my poetry blog, and my very first site here on Blogger. I deeply value questioning, on probing. In not accepting things at face value.
I believe the path to a great life comes through questions.
- What do I want to do with my life?
- What feeds my soul?
- What makes my heart soar?
- What steals my energy? My passion? My joy?

At first my research showed issues with family premium plans. But nothing in any official capacity. Neither the Spotify nor the Amazon sites. Thus, I decided to keep exploring.
I noticed that my father's name was attached the Alexa unit. Resetting the unit solved the problem.
So, it had nothing to do with the Spotify family premium account, as some sites suggested. If you're having the same issue, reconnecting your Alexa to your app might be your ticket.
This wall of cassettes! OH.MY.GAWD!
Ah, the musical history therein. Memories of siting by the play button waiting for my favorite songs, of the awesome feeling once I got a double cassette recorder, so I could create mix tapes. And sharing my tapes with my friends, introducing them to the music I loved.
Oh, and crafting mix tapes for those I loved. A custom blend of music as a gift. For someone who loves music, I couldn't think of a better gift. There were groups of my friends that would swap these tapes, with meticulously detailed liner notes. The purpose was to connect friends with music, musicians they hadn't heard before, but would certainly love.
The best were getting tapes with great bands that got no air-time. Fulfilling the ultimate proto-hipster delight of knowing a band before they became famous.
As for this photo: she is Jen Cloher, an Australian musician. I'm now streaming her self-titled album via GoogleMusic, which I'm enjoying this morning. So, you can go check out her work over at BandCamp, too. Definitely a great gift for your ears.
