Oregon: The Real Deal

One of my favorite things to do is visit my Aunt and Uncle in Oregon. When I was 10 years old, I got on a plane by myself to see them. I remember picking blackberries, digging in their vegetable garden, walking along the river, inhaling fresh air, looking out the window at miles of the open space all around us and the gentle people I continue to meet. Here are some photos of my most recent trip: end of May 2017

One of my favorite things to do is visit my Uncle Hank Murrow(master potter) and Aunt Beverly Murrow(the queen of quilt making) in August. The wildflowers are in full bloom-pears, peaches, strawberries and blackberries are ripening too.  The days are long and the sun is hot…enjoy your travels this summer! Explore, create, saturate, meet and mingle!                            Go Out Doors…..
