Hilltop’s First Snowmen of 2012

The joy a snowman (or lady) can bring is so fleeting. It only lasts as long as the cold and around here, that isn’t very long. Yesterday we saw neighbors all over the hill creating new snowpeople. Here are the ones we were able to capture.

Happy snow days!

Winter’s Gifts

Yesterday morning we made our daily trek to Northeast Tacoma to visit family. Along the way we saw the progression of a beautiful January sunrise. It reminded us of why we love living here in Tacoma: We get to be a part of a wonderfully artsy city, plus seeing the grandeur of the Puget Sound’s water, mountains, and more, is just a short drive away from the city skyline.

The beginning of a new year always brings hope and little blessings. Little by little as the days get longer, these winter sunrises seem to brighten even the dullest of gray days. They are little gifts that come with the rain.

Deep purples and pinks brighten Hilltop at the corner of 19th and J Streets.

The sun rises with yellows and pinks over Mt. Rainier and the Puyallup River.

Brand New Day

This morning we awoke to fog so dense we couldn’t even see across the street. As it dissipated, we saw the most beautiful sunrise over Hilltop.

Rotator Magazine Launch Party Tonight

Tonight at 7 pm, Fulcrum Gallery is hosting a launch party for the new Rotator Magazine, a collaborative project between local writers, artists, photographers, and graphic designers. Rotator, a quarterly magazine, will have a limited run of 500 editions each printing. Fulcrum Gallery is one of its sale locations.

Fulcrum Gallery is located along Hilltop's Martin Luther King Jr. corridor.

We are excited to see Rotator Magazine, as its list of collaborators is a highly talented and innovative crew. Art Chantry, the artist behind Fulcrum’s current exhibit, “Parkland is Burning!” is one of its collaborators.

Next week on Thursday, October 20, at 6 pm, Chantry will give an artist talk about his work at Fulcrum.

Fulcrum Gallery is located on Hilltop at 1308 Martin Luther King Jr. Way. Visit its website for more information.

We hope to see you tonight! For more information about Rotator Magazine, check out Kate Albert Ward’s article at Post Defiance, a really cool new local blog. You can also go to Rotator’s website, which should have a digital version of the magazine up and running soon.
