I Am NOT Short

As I mentioned when I wrote about my 360 review, I am not exactly skilled in the art of “avoiding saying things that won’t help.” I couldn’t give this example because I knew that my daughter was working on a blog post of her own to tell that story. She tells it better than I would. I hope you enjoy her post as much as I do,

Mount Baker Not Short on Mount Baker, Washington, 1998

In 1998, I traveled with my father to the beautiful state of Washington. We rented a car and put about 1,600 miles on it, visiting Seattle, Mount Rainier National Park, Olympic National Park, Mount Baker National Forest, Whidbey Island, Grand Coulee Dam and a quirky little Western town called Winthrop, which had good candy and ice cream and VHS rentals of great classic movies like “The Treasure of the Sierra Madre.” But I digress.

Amid these majestic settings, my Dad imparted to me many an important life lesson and one very hilariously unsuccessful compliment, the story of which he has finally authorized me to share. Allow me to introduce our characters:

Must Visit Top 5 Waterfalls Near Mumbai

Waterfalls and Canals – Pt-1

One of the best things that has happened this year in terms of blogging was having been invited to join a small group of people to share ideas, encouragement and advice. I think that I am truly the lucky member of this bunch because I think I am the only one who isn’t working as a writer. I am in some impressive company and I will be sharing some of their work during the remainder of the summer as a way of mixing it up a bit.

Back in May, I had an idea for two or more of us to try to write complimentary posts. I decided that I was going to start by attempting to write a travel post like one written by Sharukh Bamboat titled “Must Visit Top 5 Waterfalls Near Mumbai.” Sharukh has several other travel posts, but I am particularly fond of waterfalls. I will be following this in a day or two with a post about a local Connecticut water attraction. I hope you enjoy Sharrukh’s post.
