I love how she almost drops it until she smells it and that flashbulb memory hits.

“Real isn’t how you are made,” said the Skin Horse. “It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real … Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”

Margery Williams, The Velveteen Rabbit

Viper pilot crew!! The first day of the con was great, but as evidenced by the second picture, we were a little tired and weird by the end of it. We’re gonna get some ambrosia in us before the after party. #sosayweall

So say we all.

Sunday brought an excellent adventure to Mount Rainier.

A friend and I went to Indian Henry’s Hunting Ground via a washed out road and trail. Once there, we scrambled Mount Ararat, visited Mirror Lake, and took so long gathering huckleberries that it was well past sunset before we got back to the trailhead and our bikes. We zipped down the washed out road, zooming past bear poops and hearing plenty of cracking sticks in the woods on the way back to the car.

Photos are primarily of Rainier and the patrol cabin from various vantage points. You rarely see this angle of Rainier from Seattle, and I was loving it.
