half of summer

here it is almost july 15th; where i grew up in ft. walton beach, florida
this is the time of year when they celebrate half of summer. it is quite
the party! i miss the annual billy bow leg festivities. billy was a local
pirate and he is honored by the city with floats, parade and of course
drink specials. i miss the ocean and white sand, sand dunes and crunchy
hush puppies. even so, here in the great northwest i have views of the bay
of bellingham, mt.baker, the twin sisters mts. and most of the islands.
my knitting continues to increase as i would love to contribute to the
dulaan project this year. this organization distributes hats, coats and
warm apparel to the people of tibet. this is dear to my heart as the tibetans
are as self-sustaining as possible even with the political arena withholding
from the local people the necessities of life.
