I have wanted to get a shot of the mountain this vantage point for a while, finally got around to it a couple days ago. This is from Henderson, just up the hill where the road curves, past Pioneer Park where it crosses the Deschutes River.
'ti'swaq (name of the Mountain according to Robert Satiacum, Restore Native Names to Sacred Places more information)
The time of the Solstice is upon us, and lingering twilight has been ranging right up near to the Eleven O'Clock hour. These shots are from Percival Landing, at about 10:45pm yesterday eve.
A couple days ago I posted a photograph of the scene around Eastbay, here's more of the scene there, on YouTube video:
some more photos from yesterday:
Dr. Emoto from Japan will present "Messages from Water" at the Evergreen State College Longhouse, 6:00 to 8:00 PM, followed by a book signing sponsored by the Evergreen Book Store.
Dr. Emoto will gather with the public at 12:00 noon at the artesian well on Fourth Avenue, downtown Olympia, for a blessing of the water. Local elders will share a blessing to honor the waters of the Salish Sea.
Dr. Emoto’s bestselling book the Hidden Messages in Water has inspired people worldwide to rediscover their connection to water through viewing the photographs of water crystals exposed to words, photos, nature, and music.
Restoring Our Relationship
to the Healing Waters
of the Salish Sea
We are 70-90% water. What does this mean for the way we interact with each other? And what does this mean for the way we treat the rivers, lakes, and Salish Sea around us? Photos of water crystals made before and after blessing ceremonies for rivers and lakes have shown striking results, changing from ugly and ill-formed to beautiful and sparkling.
People For Puget Sound joins community groups, tribal and non tribal spiritual spokespeople and Dr. Masaru Emoto in prayer for our beloved Salish Sea.
Come join us outside of Traditions Cafe Saturday morning April 24th at 8:00 am. Bring your drums, rattles, songs, prayers. There will be an opening prayer then a talking stick will be sent around for everyone to have a chance to either pray aloud or to pray in silence.
Supporters of The Olympia Capitol Park Foundation cruised Budd Inlet aboard The Adventuress yesterday. It was a great benefit, and a lot of fun!
Jerry Reilly, of the Capitol Park Foundation, spoke optimistically of past accomplishments and the possibility of creating a truly great, and expanded, public park space on the Isthmus.
What a wonderful notion, to have an open and inclusive park on the Isthmus peninsula.

Here are some photos from aboard the ship:
