Tracey included in her post one of her favorite quotations by Agent Dale Cooper, and it's one of my favorites, too: "Harry, I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee."
So, grab yourself some coffee, a slice of pie, or some donuts, and look through these wonderful collections of little presents you can give yourself (or someone else). Enjoy!

The Portland Aerial Tram recently celebrated its 5th year, just in time for a couple of tram shots in my 36 Views of South Waterfront series. This one, #30, is from the waiting area, and #28 was taken from inside the tram itself (as was #27 from the last post).
This series was also featured on the:
How 'bout that? Also, I just learned, the two tram cars are named Walt and Jean. How 'bout that?

Well, I did it! My serene photo won the Captivus Living photo challenge. Thanks for voting for me!
