Sometimes the most remarkable thing about shadows are the light which shines between them. This dramatic beam enthralled viewers all over the Valley today, and yet we’ve seen Mt. Si under late evening sun many times all summer. The shadows of the clouds and the opposing ridge on the rest of the mountain gave the sunlight remarkable glory.

One of those days when it’s hard to pick which gorgeous scene to share first! We had a light snow at my riverside this morning and the hillsides and mountains surrounding stayed frozen all day. There’ll be more to see…
Today was rainy with high winds all day, so I’m going back to a photo taken earlier in the week. This was my polite and attentive audience at the lake on my lunch hour where I practiced my moderator and author comments for our presentation that evening. It was a great way to let go of my nerves. The fresh air felt wonderful too!
Thanks to everyone in the fun and fabulous Snoqualmie Valley Region for homing with us and/or tagging along! It was an added bonus and challenge to be a co-ML this year and lead the charge of the SnoValley NaNoRhinos! It was a tough win for me this year, and all the sweeter for surprising myself and coming through in the final sprint.
AND A BIG CONGRATS TO ALL THE WRIMOS EVERYWHERE! GREAT JOB AND THANKS FOR TAKING THE CHALLENGE WITH US! AND THANKS TO THOSE AT NANOWRIMO.ORG FOR MAKING IT ALL POSSIBLE!
Here’s a photo gallery of some highlights this month, and a glimpse at the concepts of my new Fantasy Novel manuscript, VOICES OF ELLSINORE…
Ellsinore is a place of beauty and pulls one in like a perilous daydream. Everyone loves to visit, but soon they hear the Voices on the wind, uprooted from the trees and running the cold, flashing streams. Every leaf is watching. Every flower aware. Listen…and watch your step.
Wild nature lies hidden beneath every stone, under each tree and snuggled in the moss along the river. Ellsinore, a quiet little town, is ringing with voices though some refuse to hear.
The journey of a young woman’s heart is tangled in the longing for the mother she once pushed away now lost in the wilds of Ellsinore. She follows the dream of love with a man wise beyond his years and finds the soul of her mother’s love along with the temptation to cast it to the wind in hopes to keep it forever.

I caught the moment when the sun went down behind the ridge and shined through the trees. This happens at 3:00 pm at this time of year, leaving town in a long twilight with Mt. Si the only sun-golden thing left until the sun actually goes down a couple hours later. It makes the mountain seem all the more magical.
One of our morning traditions on this holiday is watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade, even though we’re on the opposite coast from New York. I especially love the giant balloons. Adventure Time! Take a moment today no matter where you are and spend it in gratitude and appreciation. I’m grateful for you, my dear blog friends and all the moments we enjoy together!
We had the rare treat of a sunny Thanksgiving holiday today. I’m thankful for my dear husband to spend it with…just the two of us this year. As happy as two stones in a river. Take time to appreciate those you love today!
