Today I had my third hypnosis session with Emily Cahal. I've blogged about the first two sessions here and here. It left me feeling good. Not that the first sessions had me feeling bad. Quite the opposite. I simply felt...

What's awesome about Albany? Architecture, food, drink, history, art and access to the outdoors, for starters. Spend a long weekend here and you can drink negronis in an historic bank building, visit the restored historic carousel, pop between quirky galleries and shops, set the kids free in a splatter paint studio and r

When I’m not processing fiber, spinning or knitting, I enjoy visiting other small businesses nearby. Aside from driving the side roads and highways through the grass seed fields and countryside, here are a few of my favorite things to do when I’m out in the valley: The post

There's nothing like doing something that could kill you to concentrate one's mind. Many years ago I remember reading an article in Parade magazine that contained a quote from an Iraq war veteran that said something similar: "Everybody needs something...

I've been learning Tai Chi for fourteen years. One of the things I love about Tai Chi is that it is Taoism in motion. Meaning, Tai Chi embodies Taoist (or Daoist) philosophy. I can't think of any other form of...

You might have feasted on fresh crab on the Oregon Coast, or even fished for your own supper. But have you gone clamming by kayak, in the pristine waters of Netarts Bay or the Nehalem River? The North Coast Food Trail makes it easy for visitors to explore the fishers, producers, harvesters, grocers and dairy farms along

Is there anything more delightful than exploring the Columbia River Gorge? How about if you add tasting wine, jams, fresh orchard fruit and artisan treats from farm stands and purveyors along the famous Hood River County Fruit Loop? The famed 35-mile route — with 17 farm stands, 10 wineries, three cideries, six berry f

Hiking in spring and early summer is a treasure hunt of color as wildflowers bloom in the meadows and mountains of Oregon. Look for blossoms on these trails and others around the state.

As I said in my blog post about my first hypnosis session with Emily Cahal of Salem Hypnosis Solutions, we had to make a decision about which way to proceed. She told me that there were two basic ways we...

Outdoor life kicks into full swing, flowers are blooming, outdoor music begins and of course it is the gateway to summer. As a family we love to partake in as

This is my family’s first visit to Tamástslikt Cultural Institute (pronounced Tah-must-slickt) near Pendleton.

These are lands that have belonge
