There must be fifty ways to meet your lover.

Hike a new trail, Dale
Climb a new hill, Bill
I’m full of joy, Roy
Come trekkin’ with me.

I’m lookin’ for smiles, Miles
Intellectually smart, Art
Love a man with wit, Mitt
Come set yourself free.

If you are a Trump supporter, hit the back button NOW.

I find the wonder and joy in life. The infinite pleasure in the touch of a hand, the joy of tasting a juicy, ripe peach. Intense, playful, passionate and determined, I have fun every day.

I love hiking to alpine lakes surrounded by white glaciers and jagged mountain peaks. After dark, I look up and feel awed by the glowing Milky Way and billions of sparkling stars. We all need more low-level ecstasy in our lives.

Exactly. I got a Master of Public Administration degree because I get the greatest reward from doing work that helps other people. Since 2006, I have been a volunteer college mentor at Wenatchee High School. I help low income, first generation students write essays to apply for college and scholarships. One of my best success stories is Brenda, who won $269,545 in scholarships and grants in 2016. A sophomore at Wesleyan University, Brenda plans to become a medical doctor and pathologist. She wants to cure diseases. In June 2018, I I took three young women I previously mentored on a hike around Icicle Gorge.

LiterateHiker comments on Jun 28, 2019:
I was extremely impressed with Kamala Harris during the 2nd debate. She is highly intelligent, warm, clear, articulate and focused. Bravo! "On a night that featured the two Democratic front-runners ― Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) ― it was Harris who consistently controlled the debate stage time and time again with clear and measured answers, direct and pointed shots, and lucid and tremendously personal examples. “As the only black person on this stage, I would like to speak on the issue of race,” Harris said, cutting in during a discussion of racial justice. ** "The moment felt historic**: a leading candidate for president ― who is the second black woman ever elected to the Senate ― went after an elder statesman for his positions on civil rights and criminal justice that affected her personally." "But from the beginning, Harris did what she could to keep the debate ― and her own responses ― focused." https://www.huffpost.com/entry/kamala-harris-democratic-debate-2020_n_5d155f75e4b082e55366b487

LiterateHiker comments on Jun 28, 2019:
I am concerned about about my privacy to prevent: 1. My bank account being drained by hackers. 2. Medical information stolen. 2. Getting cat-fished. 3. My identity being stolen again. **Identify Theft, 2003** "Did you spent $827 in Fragrances at Macy's last night at 8:30 p.m.?" my credit card company called to ask at 9:00 a.m. A thief had charged a number of items using my credit card at the Fragrances counter. "NO," I replied. The credit card manager canceled the charge, and I canceled my credit cards. **Stolen Mail** Recently my mail had been stolen from the mailbox on my porch. I found discarded mail scattered on my lawn. Obviously, the thief was using convenience checks for my account sent by the credit card company. So, I got a Post Office box. **Police Cases Numbers** Since mail fraud is a federal crime, I got a case number and detective assigned to my case from the Wenatchee police. Wound up doing this with police in 10 other cities. Bills arrived from stores throughout Eastern Washington. I did not even open the bills. Just wrote on the back of the envelopes: "My mail was stolen on (date). A thief is using my checks. Contact: detective name, case number, police station, city, state. The thief is using the name, Kevin L. Miller, and my address." **Thief Arrested ** I am nothing if not determined. Kept careful documentation. Walmart in Moses Lake got fed up. They hired a police officer for the check stands. Dressed in a business suit, the thief was 30 years old. His apartment was crammed with a check-making machine, credit card making machine, a driver's license making machine, and piles of checks with the names, addresses and bank accounts of thousands of people in Eastern Washington. **Life Sentence** With two previous identify theft convictions, he got a life sentence under Washington's "Three Strikes and You're Out" law. The police used my documentation as evidence.

Last month, I got a lapful of glitter, opening a Mother’s Day card from my daughter Claire, 29. Reminds me of when she was a girl. I feel deeply touched by Claire’s heartwarming letter. "You've taught me how to love unconditionally and **forgive**," Claire wrote. I feel thrilled. I did that by forgiving Claire. Her dad's family hangs onto grudges like a dog with a bone. We are role models for our children. Mom, Oh, how I love you. Thank you for teaching me so many skills I’m now using as a wife and family members (her in-laws). You’ve taught me to slow down, take care of my things and pay attention to detail. You’ve taught me how to love unconditionally and forgive. You’ve taught me to cook healthy meals. I use your recipes all the time! You’ve taught me to take care of my appearance and stay heathy and active. Mom, I hope you know how stunning and gorgeous you are inside and out. Matt always says he knows I will always be fit since you are. I love and appreciate you beyond words. You take such good care of us in every way. We can’t wait to see you soon; we hope your foot heals up well. I can’t wait to build a hiking relationship with you, Mom. We love you so much! Love, Claire, Matt and Cocoa Photos: 1. Claire, 21, and me at Christmas. Mad at both parents (we had a united front), Claire **protested** scooting closer to me for the photo. See her fake smile? Ha. 2012 2.

At age 15, I sneaked outside at midnight and skated alone on thin ice. Skating in the glittering path of the full moon, I felt exhilarated by speed, danger and exquisite beauty. “Craack!” the ice shrieked beneath my feet. Long cracks fanned across the ice. Nobody knew where I was. “I’m lightweight,” I thought and skated faster. It occurred to me that if I fell in, my dead body would wash up in the Spring, maybe never. Quickly I skated to the shore and made my way around the lake to home. Never told a soul until age 35. “Don’t tell me that NOW!” my mother gasped, horrified.

LiterateHiker comments on Jun 26, 2019:
What matters more than anything when it comes to your online dating profile? **Photos**. Photos can drastically increase your chances of getting more communication and dates. Or not. You have 3 seconds to make a good impression. Women will see your main photo as a tiny pic the size of a saltine cracker on their cell phone screens. If your main photo is not clear, bright and attractive, they move on. A genuine smile is inviting, warm and attractive. You look **glum and bored. ** Nobody wants to date an angry or depressed person. Through online dating, every man I met with closed-lip photos had **horrid** teeth: missing, broken, black stumps, diseased, yellow, gray, snaggle-toothed and/or breath that stank like rotten meat. Ugh. I can't imagine kissing that. Show your pearly whites!

In the 2018 midterm elections, the Democrats, led by Nancy Pelosi, won control of the House and gained 41 seats from their total after the 2016 elections (including one seat gained previously with Conor Lamb's March 2018 special election victory). The 41-seat gain was the Democrats' largest gain of House seats since the post-Watergate 1974 elections, when they picked up 49 seats. The Democrats also won the popular vote by a margin of 8.6%, the largest margin on record for a party that previously held a minority in the House. Democrats also won control of 6 more states. Turnout was the highest for a midterm election in more than a century, with over half the electorate casting ballots.

Over the Cascade Mountains where I love to hike!
I AM a hopeless romantic.

Backwards man, post your idiotic conspiracy theories somewhere else. Barack Obama was born on August 4, 1961, at Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children in Honolulu, Hawaii. In 2008, President Obama released his long form birth certificate: https://obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/blog/2011/04/27/president-obamas-long-form-birth-certificate **Atheists and Agnostics tend to be Democrats (69%)** "Self-identified atheists tend to be aligned with the **Democratic Party** and with political liberalism. About two-thirds of atheists (69%) identify as Democrats (or lean in that direction), and a majority (56%) call themselves political liberals (compared with just one-in-ten who say they are conservatives). Atheists overwhelmingly favor same-sex marriage (92%) and legal abortion (87%). In addition, three-quarters (74%) say that government aid to the poor does more good than harm." https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2016/06/01/10-facts-about-atheists/
Would you agree?
