A gorgeous spring day in Discovery Park, Seattle.

A walk in the woods, conjoining with nature and connecting with the universe. So appropriate that this is Discovery Park as I had an opportunity to embark on a journey of discovery pondering life with the Meeks.

Thank you so much for your generosity, hospitality, and for sharing your thoughts.

Unfortunately, due to the limitations of PCrit has decreased the sharpness of this image. A more faithful rendition is here:

Thanks for the link, Richard. Very nice. I like the tones and the leaves in the higher res pic
really stand out. Of course, since you are from the great Northland, I am reminded of a
moose, even if this is Seattle. :)

An interesting image based on the combination of the toning and the interplay of light and shadow. I find a darker background (either grey or black) helps to enhance the detailing to be found in the picture.

I thought of hands reaching out, but I guess moose antlers would work too.

Well Richard, now I know what you were doing standing there before that big maple. Well seen!

Richard was a very gracious guest. Teresa was out singing Easter morning so it was up to me to serve breakfast. Richard got a bowl of my home-made sauerkraut and a pickled egg. He hardly complained at all!

It's a wonderful, big hug. Good work.

How come I never see anything like this? I'd take a picture of it, too, if I ever did. When you come to town, I'll take you to see some trees if you can take me to see sights like this.

Well, I took him to see some trees as promised. And it has dawned on me that he has shown me here that wherever he goes, he sees these wonderful patterns, and in the trees right in my backyard. The guy is like Socrates.

Sauerkraut and pickled eggs, in Seattle. Ha ! You must have got lost Richard. Michael doesn't eat foods like that. I could see seaweed & lobster. He must have been holding out on you. Nice Image, Richard.

Michael is being embarrassingly effusive in his praise. Hmmm, wasn't Socrates blind? While I was scanning the foliage Michael was picking out birds as though he was equipped with some sort of radar. I couldn't pick out a bird if my life depended on it.

As for the savory breakfast, I ate it all and directed any verbal protest into facial contortions when he wasn't in the room. Oddly the only really difficult part were the pickled eggs (I love eggs) but I usually like them soft and being hard boiled and somewhat dry I had a hard time swallowing the powdery mouthfuls. But the chocolate smoothies helped to wash it down.
