Touch the Sunrise
Where do I go from here
A cloudy trail says
Night is near
Darkness calls the sun
Into the sea
Can I believe
Won’t be gone forever
Let me see
Let me hear the Wind
Let me listen for the Quiet
Let me touch the Sunrise

Meet Gary Sandberg, a new frequent contributor, in his own words:
I was born in North Platte, Nebraska. I grew up on a farm/ranch southwest of North Platte in the sandhills.
After graduating high school in 1955, I went to stay with an aunt and uncle in the Los Angeles area and attended college at Fullerton and Long Beach State and would go home to Nebraska each summer.
I married in 1958 and moved with my wife Esther to Anaheim, Ca.
I was in the Army in 1962 and 1963 and Esther and I lived in Aschaffenburg, Germany.
In 1964 we moved to the Seattle Area and raised 2 children. I was involved in the construction business, as a partner in an inspection and testing company as well as building and remodeling houses and apartments.
I helped to start a private school in 1969, which is still operating today as Hillside Student Community located on Cougar Mountain above Eastgate. My wife Esther died in 2018. I was blessed to get together with a longtime friend and neighbor Lynn McGlocklin, whose husband had also died a few years ago. We figure between us we have over 100 years of experiences on which to draw.
Life is good.
