Have you ever sat with family, friends, colleagues, clients, and listened as they talked about how they wanted to be remembered? Have you heard them mention leaving a scholarship fund, or support for their church, or their alma mater, or the local food bank, or to help the homeless, or animals, or any of thousands of other community causes? Have you felt their desire instill charitable thinking in their children? Have you wondered how to help them accomplish these goals?

The inverted rakish metallic ice cream cone that graces the Tacoma skyline is a part of the new Tacoma…the Tacoma that sprang up after I left for Seattle and other parts unknown. To me, as a native but somewhat displaced Tacoman, I have been unsure how to react to all of this fancy coolness that has appeared to fill the formerly uninviting downtown area. I mean, there is light rail. And a university. And the old train station is now a courthouse full of glass sculptures. And, speaking of glass, there’s the Museum of Glass
--the one with the cone on top.

“I must have driven past here a thousand times and never knew this was here”
“I cannot believe I have never been to this magical place”
“It is always free to visit? I can't wait to come back and bring ______ with me.”
These are the common refrains of first time visitors to the Pacific Bonsai Museum. This treasure in our own backyard, this place of national and international renown, beguiles visitors with its art, the serenity of its grounds and the stories behind each one of the pieces individually as much as the place itself.

The Tacoma Pride Festival kicked-off yesterday and looking through the event line up it looks to be one heck of a weekend. I can’t wait to honor the LGBTQA population of Pierce County with celebration.
