The Marcus Corner: Life as it comes

Is life living not with you? Be in the different parts of life as it comes.

Watch where you go as a part. Lift what you want to be.

Age is no different. Will you make it with what it takes?

In being married you drink out of the same glass. Sprinkle food between your plates. This is love, ever more between the both of you. You as one. Taking all of yourselves to be in each other.

Be on a diet, like the meal that gives you kick. Lose the taste of food.

Use sleep to remember your loves. Dreams forgive and so must you. Be in the way of love.

Buy small clothes and lean into their buttons.

Be what you want to place into another’s life.

Eat less artificial food and be what you are.

Stand in a skinny mirror.

Be what is necessary. Resist what is in life bad. Be what you can’t find.

Love and you won’t be what you hate. Swim and you can fly. How could life live if not for God?

With a laugh you should realize what you cannot be. Time is an eraser. The past is gone.

The eye is an unbelievable camera. Could it have not come from God? It was made!

Come to the light in yourself. What is more than a perfect love?

Listen, laugh. Create imagination. Could any more make you live forever?

Lawnmower torches Arbor Vitae on Portland Drive

The riding lawn mower driven by Norma Cannon overheated and made contact with dry arbor vitae owned by Lee and Norma Curtis, sending more than a dozen of the tightly-packed trees up in flames. The mower, visible at far right, was totaled. No one was injured; neighbors first kept the fire at bay with garden hoses and Westside and Hood River Fire Departments responded and doused the fire before it reached any structures. Westside Fire chief Jim Trammell, in blue shirt, directs firefighters. The video was taken by Capt. Dave Smith of Hood River Fire Department. Enlarge
