I've always wanted a tree house and a yurt. . . such things could be erected here on TheHolyMont. . . kinda got the Jones for a raised boardwalk out across the high mountain meadow, that terminates at an hexagonal deck with a deep purple yurt on it.

Composting terlit, kitchen and shower on a gray water system. . . and a view of the Northern Rockies that could stop a clock!

Like. . . out here somewhere:

I'm still enjoying life, says he

EDIT:

This is just a link to a bigger version of the picture. The house is in Seattle. It's the Sam Hill House and now I'm trying to figure out who in the Sam Hill Seattle Sam Hill is.

OK

Samuel Hill (May 13, 1857—February 26, 1931),[1] usually known as Sam Hill, was a businessman, lawyer, railroad executive and advocate of good roads in the Pacific Northwest. He substantially influenced the region's economic development in the early 20th century.

His projects include the Peace Arch, a monument to 100 years of peace between the United States and Canada, on the border between Blaine, Washington and Surrey, British Columbia

And so in a very real sense he is still enjoying, or providing for the enjoyment of, life itself.

Interesting story from a man I had never heard of.

… a bronze vertical dial easily visible from street on the side of private home. Built in 1909, it is the oldest existing dial in Seattle. Motto: “I mark no hours not bright/Stedfast thru gloom I stand/Waiting till God command/To shine on me his light.”

Interesting sidenote that although it is easily visible from the street, I have yet to find a photo of it.

Anytime, ChickieChickie. . . you can stand out there with me and together we can marvel at the confounding reality that a private person is allowed to own something like this. I stand in awe of such a thing and take the responsibility seriously. . . and when the maintenance seems to outweigh the benefits, I just go out and sit atop OrcaRock and take a big, deep breath!

Beats the hell outta me! (ha!)


I am certain, however, that I drive my son ape sh#t at times... just for being SUCH a mom. I don't care if he IS nearly 21... I will always have my momma heart and a "mom look" that stops him in his tracks. :)

WOW. . . OrcaRock, swimming in a sea of wildflowers, is one powerful image. . . it teleported its goodness nearly 1500 miles from the Canadian border almost to the Mexican border. . . I call that:

TEN KINDS OF MAGIC!

My travelin' pal, Joni from Philly, just booked a flight up here for a whirlwind hang of only 4 days. She said, before winter set in, she just had to sleep beneath the logs of the loft.

HA!

We'll undoubtedly clock some time on OrcaRock. . . but what she looks forward to, the most, is sitting on the back deck, in heavy spa robes, drinkin' MontanaCoffeeTradersFrenchRoast and listening to the sounds of NOTHING!

This place holds the magic. . . that's for sure!

Nice flowers, dood!

My old friend, Walt Rosenthal, may he rest in peace, used to think it was really weird that humans cut the genitals off plants, stuck them in vases and gave them as gifts. . . . he went on to say he was really glad there wasn't a being on this planet that cut the genitals off humans, stuck them in vases and gave them as gifts!
