Today’s Walking Photo: I was pretty happy to see this bunny rabbit in my neighborhood today.
Yeah, I called him a bunny rabbit. Man card revoked. Whatever.

Today’s Walking Photo: Today was my first day walking again after a string of difficult days and weeks, which culminated last Wednesday when I lost my sister Lissa after a prolonged illness – and then the very next day my brother Steve passed away suddenly in completely unrelated circumstances and in a different city. I’m still working on the grief and the absurd unreality of it all, and although I did have my camera with me today, nothing seemed photo-worthy when I had those two precious people so prominently on my mind. So I decided to place a little memorial for them here in the Walking Photos today, in hopes that this will help me move forward and resume posting the style of pictures that we’re all used to on this blog. Thank you for indulging me, and thanks to so many who have already reached out and expressed their sympathies.

Today’s Walking Photo: My walking has been limited of late…but I still seem to come across some interesting things. I like the cave painting quality of these stick figures. Each figure appears to be quite content with its body image.

Today’s Walking Photo: I guess they’re expecting to rescue, like, a lot of dachshunds?

Today’s Walking Photo: Rainbow over Portland, as seen from the 12th floor of OHSU’s Kohler Pavilion. As beautiful as this was, I’d rather have been just about anywhere else.

Today’s Walking Photo: I realize that envy is one of the Seven Deadly Sins. Still, after seeing this I feel like I need an attack droid guarding my mailbox now.

Today’s Walking Photo: Sorry, I know this isn’t exactly pretty…although I’m not sure it’s exactly ugly either. But for me it’s mostly evocative of a moment in time from yesterday. I’m always fascinated by the way that visual memories can become indelibly tied to life experiences.

Today’s Walking Photo: It seems that my eye is often drawn to murderous-looking implements like this one…but I’m just gonna put it down to watching too many terrible TV shows.
[A knowledgeable friend clued me in to the fact that far from being an instrument of murderous mayhem, this tool – called a pulaski – has an impressive history of actually saving lives.]
