Happy Fourth Birthday to Elliot Hill.
I am a Pacific Northwest native transplanted to the southeast for 36 years. In 2012, I returned to my childhood home and fell in love with this corner of the country again. I am a grandmother, a storywriter, a teacher, an attention payer, a hiker, and a back roads wanderer. Check out my website (and my memoir) at www.gretchenstaebler.com.

Beautiful, interesting article about walking in the woods with your mother! Absolutely wonderful! I grew up in Centralia, leaving in 1960. Wish to God I had been smart enough to arrange to move back. I have been in love with Centralia all my life. Gorgeous photos of Seminary Hill where the Girl Scouts and Brownies held Day Camp for a full week each summer. We LOVED the Hill and activities we learned. The only bad memory is the flavor of water suspended in HUGE canvas bags. Ick! How I wish I had a mother for so long. Mine died suddenly, one day when I was 29 and she only 54 AND healthy, we thought. Thanks for the Centralia memories!
Jeanne, I just found this lovely comment in a folder of unpublished comments. Ach! I’m sad that I missed it so long ago. Thank you for it. I hope you are still reading my blog. Gretchen
