Worth waking up at 5:00, hands down.
Great views at the end of the Watchman Trail. We recommend doing this 2.7-mile roundtrip hike in the morning, when the switchbacks are at least shaded for the uphill climb.

, we led our first community workshop last Saturday in Hort Park. It was full of joyous moment! We had a participants ranges from 7yo to 60yo, some came alone, some came with partner, some brought their kids. 2 hours of fun filled modern floral workshop, and we couldn't be happier! .
Thankyou for offering your beautiful event and space. To all who attended and came by, thankyou so much for such delightful morning. I am so amazed by the great energy and how all of you independently drew all you tote bags.
Much love, Marilyn.
Most people know I'm on a road trip by now, many probably have no clue why. My young cousin took his own life in October. My other cousin @meg_heals
,his sister, is an artist and made his Memorial one to remember. So much so that I cannot see a purple flower without thinking of Q. His favorite song was Purple Summer, and Meg arranged a beautiful performance at the Memorial to this song. Since Q, unfortunately we have both experienced more loss. My uncle and Meg's father took his own life very recently. She's had two close friends pass as well since October and I lost the most important person in my life, my Gram in February. In my opinion that is too much loss for 9 months. But instead of staying in bed and dwelling on a life we cannot change, we are out in search of our own Purple Summer. We are choosing to feel even if the feelings aren't ideal. We are choosing to live. I caught this shooting star the other night in this photo and thought for sure it was our lost loved ones letting us know they are there for us, letting us know we are on the right path. 💜 #purpleSummer #milkyway #milkywaychaser #Nikon #nikonphotography
Driving home and I miss Maine so much already. I may be looking at unrealistic home purchases as Craig drives to console myself.

.*Geeky Camera information below* .
This is an In-Camera stacked multiple exposure of 180 half-second shots. The Olympus EM-5 Mark II does this type of shot in "Live Composite" mode. The fastest shutter time available is 1/2 of a second, so you will have to use a polarizer or neutral density filter to get your shutter speed that slow.
even with all that, this technique only works about 1% of the time because the clouds in the sun really have to cooperate... But when they do, it's one of the coolest things I've ever seen!
Love this quote! But it’s a bit of a mystery who to credit. A NPS movie we watched said “old native proverb” but a quick Google search credits Wendell Berry with an earlier version. Over the years the quote has been modified, but the meaning remains the same. 🌎
“We can learn about it from exceptional people of our own culture, and from other cultures less destructive than ours. I am speaking of the life of a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children; who has undertaken to cherish it and do it no damage, not because he is duty-bound, but because he loves the world and loves his children.” —The Unforeseen Wilderness: An Essay on Kentucky’s Red River Gorge, 1971
