HOW I KNOW I'M HOME

Rainier

first bouquet

Exhibit A: Snowy Mt. Rainier out the window of a jet plane. At one point I could see Rainier, St. Helens, Adams and even a tiny speck I'm sure was Mt. Hood off in the distance, all at once. Sound the trumpets in my heart!

Exhibit B: The first little bouquet from my parent's garden up in my attic room: Buff Beauty, honeysuckle, lavender, oregano flowers. Grandma's silver teapot. Many more to follow.

I am northwest kid too. Coming home I feel the same way when I see those mountains, and I feel such relief when I walk off the airplane, how the northwest air comes in through the space between the gangway and the plane. The air is so good in the northwest.

i like that you didn't clean away the cobwebs in the second picture.

you've inspired me to try and document the one i keep intact under the CD table.
