Hello

Today is the first day of spring AND it is the earliest spring in our life time! This is an interesting article explaining how this happened. 
Spring equinox comes early this year, thanks to leap days! Learn more from Bob Berman, astronomer for the Almanac.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

One of my neighbors got into the spirit of the holiday by decorating a tree in front of her house.  Any of you doing something interesting to celebrate? #stpatricksday

I went to Whistler, Canada this week.  I drove up from Seattle and took some photos along the way.  I hope you enjoy them.  Most of these were taken from my car while my husband was driving so they aren't always exactly perfect, but still not a bad capture of the drive between Seattle and Whistler.

The Caged Bird

The free bird leaps
on the back of the wind
and floats downstream
till the current ends
and dips his wings
in the orange sun rays
and dares to claim the sky.

But a bird that stalks
down his narrow cage
can seldom see through
his bars of rage
his wings are clipped and
his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing.

The caged bird sings
with fearful trill
of the things unknown
but longed for still
and his tune is heard
on the distant hill
for the caged bird
sings of freedom

The free bird thinks of another breeze
and the trade winds soft through the sighing trees
and the fat worms waiting on a dawn-bright lawn
and he names the sky his own.

But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams
his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream
his wings are clipped and his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing

The caged bird sings
with a fearful trill
of things unknown
but longed for still
and his tune is heard
on the distant hill
for the caged bird
sings of freedom.

--Maya Angelou

It was such a beautiful day here in the Pacific Northwest. I got to go out with my camera and visit Discovery Park in Seattle. According to Wikipedia; "Discovery Park is a 534 acres park on the shores of Puget Sound in the Magnolia neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. It is the city's largest public park and contains 11.81 miles of walking trails

Digitally Exploring the Cyber Universe
Introduction

 I have been digitally exploring the online Universe since 1997.  I am using Google+ as a blog as well as a creative outlet

  • I enjoy making memes
  • I try and write funny stories
  • I write about technology
  • I write about books
  • I like meeting new Plussers from all over the world and engaging with them
  •  I am actively  trying to help create a peaceful global community on Google+
Follow me on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/maria.sommerfield
A little bit about me you might like to know:

I am a mother of three small children and a wife of over 10 years; this is one of the most important parts of my identity and while I don't often write about my family this does not mean they are not an extremely important part of my life.  I have a degree in computer science, and am a certified systems administrator.  I love technology and the internet, and have been actively participating in social media before anyone even came up with that term.  I am a very avid reader, and I am fairly athletic.  I enjoy running and yoga as well as any outdoor activity.  I study mycology as a hobby and have been a ballroom dancer for many years, although lately I don't have a lot of time for dancing.   I have recently become a vegan and am experimenting with a plant based diet.

I do my best to be engaging and I really value all my readers.  Thank you for checking out my profile, I hope to meet you in cyberspace.
