Oregon writer, Rain Trueax, and Oregon painter, Diane, co-author Rainy Day Thought, where they write about experiences, ideas, nature, creativity, and culture. The latter might appear at times political, but we will try to avoid partisanship to speak to the broader issues that impact a culture. This is just too important a time not to sometimes speak to problems that impact society. As she and I do, readers will find we often disagree and have for over 50 years-- still able to be close friends. You can do that if you can be agreeable that we share more than not despite the difference.

Diane posts on Wednesdays and Rain on Saturdays. There may be extra days or changes as situations warrant. Comments, relating to the topic, are welcome as it turns an article into a discussion, but must be in English, with no profanity, hate-filled comments, or links (unless pre-approved).

Fantasy, the painting by Diane Widler Wenzel, cropped a little to fit the needs of a banner.

Back of Beyond

For the next couple of blogs, I'll be posting photos from Eastern Oregon which is where I have been for the last few days. Since I just got home from many miles of road, today's blog will be short. This particular photo is the Middle Fork of the John Day River and definitely qualifies as the back of beyond!

I like this photo very much and am eager to see more of Oregon. You know this looks similar to North Eastern California.
