This and That

We plugged in our old computer a couple of days ago. There was so much information in there that we haven't seen in a loooooooooonnngg time...we had fun going through and looking at some old pictures. Here are some to see. Remember that you can click on a photo to see it enlarged.

Seven Sisters (The Hoh Rainforest)

Sun In The Maple

Sunset on Second Beach (La Push, WA)

Forest Trillium

Wagon Stop

Fun Guy (Hoh Rainforest)

Oldest and Youngest: A Vet and His Grandson (My dad and youngest child, 2000)

Old Chevy

Another Sunset on Second Beach (La Push, WA)

There's also a whole mess of information that I was so excited to see again, including a book I'd been working on for a few years and my entire research project from 2002-2003 and the 19 page paper I wrote on childbirth for an independent learning contract. It's cool to look back five years and see how passionate I was about birth--and know that I still feel that passion. I have a doula client due at the end of this month. I'm so excited.

Remember a posting about Laurie Michaels, a woman here who had an aneurysm about half way through her third trimester of pregnancy... Her baby was born on December 12 (I think she was due toward the end of January)and she saw and held her baby for the first time on January 8. Here, again, is the link to her husband's blog. I cried when I read about her meeting little Ella for the first time. Here is a link to the picture of the reunion.

So, still busy, still loving my job, still loving my family more and more each day. May you always know that you're loved by someone. It's the most beautiful feeling in the world.

Those are great photos. I really like the sun in the maples - it feels really calming to me.

Usually I just assume that no news is good news, but when you read someone's blog, you never know if they're just not feeling like talking about their struggles. Post away, woman! It doesn't have to make a ton of sense or all be linked up with some larger purpose. Bits and pieces of your writings, your thoughts that day. Cut and paste from your essays and book?
