This year, I got in 17 road trips. I visited Lynden, La Connor, Edison, Langley (WA), Birch Bay, Fairhaven, Blaine, Fort Langley, Campbell Valley, Whytecliff Park, Reifle Bird Sanctuary, Squamish, and Shannon Falls. It was a good year for discovering new places and reconnecting with familiar places.
A few weeks ago, I was in an artist's store and had a conversation with the proprietor who seemed a little down. We spoke a lot about what she was doing, and the art in the store, and after a few minutes she asked, "What is it you do?"
