Sunday Stills: Reflections of #Peace at 60

Festive birthday table Well, I did it, I turned 60 last Wednesday. And yes, I feel peaceful about this slightly scary event! I admire and have many friends and relatives who are 60 and older, and most don’t look like the traditional perception of “60.” Whether it is their smooth but slightly weathered skin, graying …

Sunday Stills: Walking Through the #Calm Before the Storm

One View of My Weekly Walk Despite the cliché post title, this week for me is seriously the calm before the storm! Not only are we making the 15-hour drive in one day up to Spokane Washington this Friday, but I also have 80 final papers to grade to the tune of 135,000 words, over …

Sunday Stills: #Yellow Leaves of Autumn

This Veteran’s Day weekend finds me relaxing at home amidst the changing Autumn landscape here in Sacramento. As a city with a large urban forest and a “City of Trees” distinction, Sacramento's Autumn show does not disappoint once the leaves begin to color.

Sunday Stills: Mellow #Yellow

Isn’t yellow a lively, cheery color? When I think of August, I think of heat, which makes me think of cloudless, sunny skies, at least out here in the West. I've always associated the month of August with the color yellow. You guessed it, this week’s Sunday Stills theme is anything yellow. I added “mellow” …
