Hello and welcome! Thanks for visiting my blog, which began as "Old Girl of the North Country" in December of 2006. The photo at the top of the page was taken in the summer of 2011, looking to the east from the porch of my home in the far northern corner of Western Washington.
"OLD GIRL OF THE NORTH COUNTRY" (the earliest name for my blog) was created in early December of 2006 so that I could post a 40-year retrospective of my paintings and drawings. As of March 2013, my blog is now titled "TALKING 37TH DREAM (RUMORS OF PEACE)."

Not in God's wilds will you ever hear the sad moan, "All is vanity." No, we are paid a thousand times for all our toil, and after a single day spent outdoors in their atmosphere of strength and beauty, one could still say, should death come — even without any hope of another life — "Thank you for this most glorious gift!" and pass on.
-- John Muir (1838-1914)
Philip Henslowe: Mr. Fennyman, allow me to explain about the theatre business. The natural condition is one of insurmountable obstacles on the road to imminent disaster. Hugh Fennyman: So what do we do? Philip Henslowe: Nothing. Strangely enough, it all turns out well. Hugh Fennyman: How? Philip Henslowe: I don't know. It's a mystery.
