This blog is a place where my family and friends can go to check on my current condition. If I am posting, they know that I am alive! and coherent enough to string a few ideas together. For myself, designing a unique website and creating blog posts is a fun, free, and creative hobby. And sharing blogs with others enables me to meet interesting strangers with wise and hilarious thoughts who live in places that I will never be.
Any time I see a weather forecast in the Pacific Northwest, I remember that there are 10,000 words in Eskimo for snow. There must be at least that many words for rain in the Northwest. They could replace all forecasts with the simple, “Unremitting gray sky, with some form of water falling from it, either now or later.”
Why do male dogs run around peeing prolifically everywhere and then take five minutes sniffing out the perfect spot to poop? Here are some silly dog pictures.
Isn’t this beautiful? Nothing I can create or contrive surpasses a simple moonlit night. Even the nighttime colors tonight are beautiful. I see that taking photographs can be a form of worship.

Merry Happy! Here are four virtual presents for you from Summersday at Current Conditions.

Enjoy!
I found this setting up my new blogs. I’ve seen optical illusions before, but this one is the best that I’ve seen.
“Are blogs important? Worth reading? Worth writing? Are we just nostalgic for the fact that we got an “A” in creative writing back in the day?” When we write in blogs are we being extremely productive at an activity that is important?
After experimenting with writing within a single blog for several years now, I’ve decided that that strategy doesn’t work for me. What I have observed watching other people’s blogs is that their blogs work best when they stay relatively focused. So I am parting out this blog. My hope is that, like cars, the sum worth of the parts will be greater than this whole.
