Benjamin Moore’s Main Street Matters

MAIN STREET MATTERS BY BENJAMIN MOORE PAINTS Video

An interesting observation of life is small town folks seem drawn to the city and city folks want to escape to the small town. Both offer something that helps counter balance the perceived doldrums or chaos of the other. Listen to the commercial and perhaps you will recognize Brad Pitt’s voice too. Also, the are having a contest on nominating your favorite Main Street.

Father’s Day Celebration

My Father’s Day celebration was perfect this weekend. I heard from my four children early in the morning and considered myself blessed. I thought back to my Dad and did the usual assessment of his personality, strengths and arrived at the eventual conclusion…remarkable man…I was lucky, I was blessed.

I wish I would have told him that beyond when I told him, as I held his hand, as he took his final breathes in the hospital. 

This weekend, I attended my daughter’s graduation at the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington. It was a very pleasant celebration that segued, in my mind, into the joys of fatherhood, the bittersweet transitions, the sometimes blind luck that results in amazing kids.

Before Grads

6,000 empty seats on the stadium floor awaited the graduating class of 2013

My daughter about to walk up to receive her diploma. Optimism, relief, expectation, apprehension….life.

Cottonwood Trees: It is that time again……..

when the black Cottonwood trees, in the wild land area behind our homes, start their month long snow fall of cotton that coats everything like a gauzy shroud. Just when the yard comes into shape comes the swirling, cottony mess…it started this weekend.

Soon the lawn and street will be white.

This morning’s coating begins as the morning warms up the seedlings fall.

Cottonwood Grass

Like drifting snow, the accumulations build up against edges and corners first.

I prefer the real snow…………I think
