My Favorite "poem" is by Marianne Williamson,

"Our Deepest Fear"

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. "

(You can find the rest of this speech on-line!)

Personal Information:
I am 5'8.
I was born and raised in the Portland, OR area. Now I reside in a suburb of PDX, which I love because it still has that home town feel.

I'm married and have one super duper son. I also share my home with Shasta, my girl Minnie Aussie and Chiquita, our cuddly chihuahua!

Other Information:
Last book I read: People of the Mist.
Downloaded onto my iPhone to see if I'd like reading a book on it. Free book, and wow... I love reading from my iPhone at night to help me go to sleep! No lights on, and all I have to do is drop my phone on the bed when I can't stay awake anymore! LOL... However, they are still way too expensive for e-books!!!

I would love to hear what your favorite book is. I need to know a good book to read next!

    I love your pictures. Are you still using Photoshop? I am trying to learn it but have a long way to go. Your family looks great. I have two girls but married a guy with three boys (all five are now grown and gone). Heard on TV that someone was getting snow already this year. Seems early but in Alabama any snow is an event and all the schools close. Hope you have a great weekend and I'd like to hear from you if you have time.

    I have been gallivanting around from my home to the coast since May and I have been loving it but not loving all the work that I leave behind to do when I get back! At my house, work has a life of its own and manifests itself in the form of yard work, garden care, dust, laundry and neglected pets; well, the pets think they are neglected but our son looks after them when I'm not here.

    I just wanted to let you know that I haven't fallen off the earth; I'm still here or there, but mostly "there" until this fall probably.

    Meanwhile I hope you have a lovely holiday and summer and don't work or play too hard.
