|World's largest Spruce tree in WA.|

This week I have been celebrating my date of origin some (age irrelevant) years ago.
Last night a friend and I went off to see a new movie, "Hello, My Name is Doris" which seemed an 'age appropriate' story.
|It is impossible to see the top of this tree from|
the bottom, and the girth at the base is quite
massive. Well worth the trip.
When a woman is youthful, energetic, still thinking and creating, why can't she be seen as she is?
Why do folks want to say "She's doing all right for the age she is..." or "She's robbing the cradle?"

years old. I don't think I even want to live
"Hello, My Name is Doris" is about an older woman (Sally Field) who has a youthful outlook, ready to explore more of life. She is living... not just coasting along. And she reinvents herself as the movie progresses.
Men who were born around my date of origin are, in far too many cases, tapping their toes waiting for the Glory Train to pull into the station and take them out of this world.
So, don't ask me ever again about my age... it is just as irrelevant as how much money I have or what color my skin is. I am. But who I am today is different from who I was yesterday, and I will continue to be different in the days, weeks and months to come. I am evolving.
So, in looking for some photos to give some relief to the rant, I found these from my trip to the RainForest in Quinault, WA last summer. It's not far away from Sequim or Port Angeles and so it's an easy day trip to go and explore some natural history.
Here's a link to read more about the tree, it's location and the area where it is situated with some walking trails and other activities.
Stay tuned... isn't this a joyous life?
