As the warm weather here in Seattle continues to poke it’s little head out of the soggy hole it has been hiding in, I find myself turning my thoughts to one of my favorite pastimes; the wonderful sport of golf.  I have many a great story, and many a most likely not so great musing about the game of golf-perhaps to be shared in the coming weeks, but in the spirit of the newly arrived spring, today I propose something different.

Today, I say, quit reading the snooze. Literally stop right now and get outside! (if you have nice weather, and are not working, of course…..or maybe even if you are….).  Too few are the times in life when we choose mother nature over our electronic devices and our LCD displays.  Go forth, off the grid, and enjoy life.

If you are a golfer, break the clubs out and make a tee-time.  If you are a non-golfer, consider a lesson-believe me it’s a wonderfully frustrating but even more wonderfully rewarding game.  If you refuse golf and aren’t tempted by my wonderful pictures below, fine, but at least get some outdoors time.

  1. <200 words, < 5 pictures.

    One alone is acceptable, the two together is not – offer some commentary on the pictures!

  2. Skeptical: It seems to me that golf is certainly not your sport of choice, because to those whose find harmony with the sport it matters not how many words are spoken about the game, the round, or the course. In fact, the fewer the words the more room to commune with the elements and environment and truly appreciate that the game has taken you out of your house and into the great outdoors.

    It has often been said that a picture can paint a thousand words…by many much more suited to use such a phrase than I. However, I find it well versed and particularly applicable here. We would pay heed to release the need for exact information from time to time and simply let the imagination wander.

    To label the pictures and write extensively about them, perhaps, is worthwhile; if only to credit the hard work and time paid by those whose create such scenes. For now, though, they shall remain unlabeled; stimulating the imagination and creating a gateway for the mind to yearn for such a place, uncluttered by the yammering for more information.
