First Time’s a Charm: A Run Oregon recap of the inaugural Run for the Oaks 8k — Run Oregon

I find that inaugural events typically fall into one of two categories – providing a good experience with a few minor hiccups or trying really hard with some significant hiccups. It’s HARD to plan, manage, and deliver a race. It’s even harder when it is the first jump into the racing scene. I personally know that challenges […]

by A.G. Young There is no doubt that no matter where you are in your writing journey, you have faced self-doubt. That you probably still feel it. Whether each time you sit down you feel it like a shadow creeping in on you, or after you find yourself published you wonder if it was a […]

… on a visitor’s return home — just ponderin’

Spike! He’s all adult-y! I knew he’d be back. Last year we had some rather interesting initial indications of his presence (made known in particularly impactful style to one Marshal Dillon Dingle). And then, early one morning he made his little, juvenile self known. He posed for a few pics to boot and even ended up on […]

Here or there or anywhere!

I have decided to rebrand this blog, which we abandoned after a class project and try to revive it into something cool.  I have no idea how much time I will have for it when classes start back up, but, I figured why not…yes Amy you silly girl you already have another blog that you never update (as it is).  The reason is, I feel like I outgrew it a little, or just fizzled out with it.

wagontrainEventually I will merge this blog with my other blog and maybe rebrand the other blog into Rogue Spirit if I like where this goes but for now I will just have some fun with it and see if I can make use of it.  The challenge is to make it worth reading and lets face it, everyone and their mom is a blogger and/or a photographer.  Easy to do, hard to do well!

Why have I added a picture of a wagon train?  I don’t know.  I find it interesting, have you ever stopped to think about how crazy and hardy early pioneers were? When you do, you appreciate them, and I feel like our area still carries a little of that spirit from back then. Not just the crazy part either!🙂

Anyway, what I am really trying to say is I am going to use this blog for my own personal something and maybe it will be worth merging into my main blog.  I hope you find this an interesting place to stop by and read once in a while!

 

Find Your Place: Musings from the Bear Creek Greenway — Hike and Go SEEC!

In the summer, insects drone loudly beneath a thick canopy of riparian vegetation and ripe blackberries, while white fluff falls like snow. The future of Black Cottonwood trees along Bear Creek is certain. My wheels whir a harmony with the insects and the breeze down by the water is refreshing, a meditation to combat the […]
