Novelties In Life

Here are some photos from last weekend. Luckily, there's no such thing as a bad photo on the island. It was incredibly fun re-introducing myself to a place that I love so much! For example, I don't remember seeing snails on blackberry leaves before.

I've always considered myself to be very observant, but I could never understand why I had such a hard time remembering things (details in old memories and things of that nature - long term stuff). In fact, I can't count the number of times a friend, or family member has told a story that included me and I have absolutely no recollection of the event. Finally, now I know that I wasn't causing the lack of memory (due to inattention), but that my tumor was shoving my brain and taking away the real estate. Which oddly makes me happy, and makes me feel like I'm not crazy, or oblivious. I'm sure I've seen snails on blackberry leaves before, but often I get to feel like things are a new experience even though logically I'm sure I've experienced them before. I'm kind of like a child, very excited about the novelties in life.

    These pictures are lovely and bring back happy memories of Friday Harbor- especially the ferry boat coming in and the boat landing.
