Along the way, we view the ocean, meet rabbits, birds, squirrels, cow, cats, dogs, and sometimes deer. We pick and eat berries from the wild vines that grow throughout the island.

One of the exercises in your creative brain book that I borrowed from the library is to memorize 10 poems. You work with one poem at a time, memorizing and then reciting the poem from memory for seven days. Husband is joining me on this exercise, so today we stopped along our walk to recite our poems.
My first poem is by Li Po based on Ezra Pound's translation:
Marble Stairs Grievance
On Marble Stairs
still grows the white dew
That has all night
soaked her silk slippers
But she lets down
her crystal blind now
And sees through glaze
the autumn moon.
View of the August blue moon rising over pugent sound off of Whidbey island.
