. Show off your ink, kids! These are my two....for now. I came to the full conclusion that I could live with the promotion of peace and equal rights for the rest of my life and didn't mind having them permanently etched on my skin. If you aren't familiar with it, the equal sign is from the Human Rights Campaign, a giant promoter of equal rights for all humans. I've had people ask me if it's an electrical plug! And the peace sign is 50 years old this year -- and we need it now more than ever. So, show off your tattoos .... tell us about them. Post a link to your pics so we can all enjoy. (And my sincere apologies for the poor picture quality in the one pic.)

My back is better but I'm not sure if it's from the cortisone shot or not. Simply, I think that time has allowed it to heal some. It's been a struggle or seven years or so. Plus, when you get old, that's just part of the package deal!
I can't believe that it's already the last week of March. I guess we'll forever be saying "I can't believe how fast time flies....." Do you ever feel like you're wasting time, or letting things pass in front of you that you should be taking advantage of, or wishing that things were different than they are? I mean, for some of us, we're definitely at mid-life. The run is close to half over. Now, that's a pretty thought, isn't it? I have no regrets. But I definitely want to be sure I'm grabbing every opportunity that presents itself. I hope you will too.

"If same-sex couples need legal protection, they should consult their legislative representatives. If they need legislation to do that, no one is going to stand in their way."-- Defense of Marriage Coalition Executive Director Mike White, Lincoln City News Guard 11/10/2004
"The Coalition's amendment did not preclude the state of Oregon from creating civil unions, so that same-sex couples could have the same rights as married heterosexual couples."-- Defense of Marriage Coalition Spokesperson Georgene Rice, The Dalles Chronicle 9/30/2004

Check out a few of my photo sets that have new pictures in them:
Sauvie Island (including amazing shots of Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Hood)
Late winter is well under way here. Daffodils and crocus are blooming, forsythia starting, and pink and white flowering cherry trees. I do have to say, Portland is the place to be in the springtime. We'll be adding azalea and rhododendron to the mix in April and May. It's quite a show.
