Oops... Avy control sort of took out the High Campbell lift chair at Crystal Mountain, which will, needless to say,  be closed for the remainder of the season.

"Crystal Mountain says they continue to have abnormal avalanche conditions and they have been doing avalanche control work over the past few days. You can see the power of these snow slides in this video the ski resort released of avalanche control work conducted Sunday afternoon...."  (very impressive video which shows the power of a heavy wet avy)

As always, check the NWAC (or your local avy center) site before deciding to go out www.nwac.us
A triggered avalanche wiped out a chair lift at the Crystal Mountain ski resort Monday evening.

Sailing might be an addiction when...I forgo taking photos and stow the Nikon all day in order to focus on the racing boat and all it's gadgets and rigging bits.
No photos from Center Sound Series Scatchet Head, but did have one helluva day (even after the winds died and rain picked up)

Epic halyard retrieval, posted just for +Joe Modzski 

This is how the day ended for Rubicon, after the Center Sound Series Blakely Rock race.  This weekend is the CSS Scatchet Head on a Farr 39, with 20kt winds forecasted, so will see what epicnicity (is that a word?) comes from that.   Stay tuned...

Excellent write-up on the Pink Boat Regatta by local sailor lady Ashley Bell (featured in photo with her mom, a breast cancer survivor). 
There are multiple ways to get involved in this event, and with donations, to invest in a cure for cancer (not just breast cancer) and here's where the Pink Boat Regatta invites you to join in the effort http://www.pinkboatregatta.org/ 

(article features a great photo of a new sail design for this event: a 'brazinnaker' - so much creativity and love goes into this event... please do join in participation)

To all you savvy developers out there, who harbor a passion for astrosciences, or at least nurture a strong desire to avoid massive asteroid impacts....

The Asteroid Data Hunter contest scheduled for launch on 17 March will offer a total of US $35 000 over the next six months to anyone with the coding chops to create new asteroid-hunting algorithms. Winning solutions must boost detection sensitivity, minimize false positives, overlook imperfections in the telescope imaging data, and run well on all computer systems. Such efforts could help NASA's sky surveys find even smaller asteroids that still pose a threat to human populations.

 Heard about this story yesterday, and sure enough it's true.
Admittedly, I laughed until I snorted out loud. 
It seemed like a good idea at the time...

(p.s. really, it happened http://www.snopes.com/critters/disposal/whale.asp)

Seen it many times. Such an ingeeeeenious solution. For years, couldn't hear the words "beached whale" without cracking up.

I've been busy working, racing sailboats, and climbing mountains... and totally lame here on G+.
Yes, I'm still alive, and yes I'll be better about posting. 
Thanks for the emails wondering what's up :)

Story
Tagline
"Ahimsa" is abstaining from causing harm or injury - Do No Harm - make the world a better place
Introduction

Dark chocolate, red wine, and #33000 make me happy.
My dogs remind me to be present in the moment.  
Creative arts keep me inspired to inspire.
Sapiosexual extraordinaire, smart people keep my attention.
My soul gets fed by nature, mountains, sailing, and the wondrous undeniable truth of science. 

The INTJ personality type is rare, comprising only about 2% of the U.S. population, and INTJ females are especially rare – just 0.8%.  So what this means is that I am somewhat of an odd duck in general, and especially odd for a girl.  Set expectations :)

I enjoy a good philosophical discussion, so feel free to share your thoughts/ideas/inspirations.  The utmost respect and tolerance for differing opinions is appreciated.

Seeing the value in diversity and embracing the challenge of thinking outside our own little personal spheres give us an understanding of the world we share.

It's for this reason my circles are highly diverse.
I thank you all for respecting each other here on M's  G+.
