solitary…

Warrior Point Lighthouse (built 1889) situated on Sauvie Island along the Columbia River to warn incoming ships of a bedrock reef that juts out from Sauvie Island into the Columbia River. As many as 2000 large cargo ships pass by this small lighthouse into Portland, Oregon each year.

Lift off…

Tundra Swans take off from a pond on Sauvie Island (Oregon). Several posts back, I misidentified the large birds as Snow Geese. Snow Geese of black tipped wings and are generally smaller than the all white winged Tundra Swans…both inhabit the island.

‘Hello, I’m Harvey’

‘Hey, I’m Sybil’   The Blue Heron have started to pair up, high in the rookery trees. I have yet to find an accessible spot closer to the action. But, I will try…

“Surely, it gives dignity to life to believe that we are born into this world for noble ends, and that we have a higher destiny than can be accomplished within the narrow limits of this physical life.” Helen Keller

C. S. Lewis on Do Gooder Tyranny

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
