Since the annual Zine Symposium began in […] Continue reading »

Moses Lake Sunsets

Sunset views from the Desert Oasis, Moses Lake Washington. Some interesting facts from the Moses Lake Wikipedia page: Moses Lake, on which the city lies, is made up of three main arms over 18 miles (29 km) long and up to one mile (1.6 km) wide.

Too much caffeine weirds me out. But I love the taste of coffee. So once in a while I enjoy a small cup of decaf. Hits the spot.
