Shortly after I came out to British Columbia in early 2006 I had a case of severely high blood pressure. It wouldn't have been fair to an employer for me to work for them until I got my health situation sorted out. I was on medications to lower the blood pressure and it took until early 2007 to find the cause. I finally went to a naturopath who found that a microscopic parasite was the cause for all this.

While getting my health in order, I took up blogging to share my photography. This way I wasn't wasting time and others got to enjoy the photos, not just me and those close to me.

In May of this year I had a mini-stroke cause again by severely high blood pressure. I may end up gong to the naturopath again since the specialist and other MDs can't seem to find the cause. This has only been a problem out here. Before that in Ontario, the blood pressure was only marginally high, not severely high like in BC.

Knowledge is good because being forewarned is forearmed!

All that said, enjoy this blog and all the photos I share with you.

High clouds but still overcast

The clouds Sunday were high but it was still overcast. Luckily it didn't rain at all. Since the clouds were high, the mountains in the east could be seen clearly. Saturday they were shrouded in cloud and mist. Both images above look east out of my dining room window. The top photo shows the nearby condominium complex. The shadow cast in the foreground is from my three storey apartment building. Looking through the tree in the lower photo you can see Mt. Baker in the distance. This mountain is a volcano, one of many in the Cascade Range. I'll let you know when it starts rumbling and smoking. In that case, we'll have a case of "shake and bake" but so far, aside from the odd rumble over the years, it's been "relatively" quite. Relative is the key word. Eventhough it's classed as a dormant volcano, that just means it hasn't erupted for a while. In geological terms two hundred years ago was just yesterday!
