An account of the Swope family's travels through life and Earle's observations following a series of unforeseen events. Earle (Dad) experienced a near death experience and subsequent PTSD in 2008. In 2013 their 3rd child Gabriel was born with HLHS (Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome) which means no left ventricle and 3 open heart surgeries. In spite of or because of, we realize how blessed and rich are our lives and how wonderful this human experience.

Earle's beach birthday
San Gregorio State Beach, a cool beach piled with driftwood. Cool eroded sandstone rock/cliffs. The kids climbed most of them.
The beach is covered with drift wood, therefore many people use the driftwood to build shelters/fort. I decided to start a seperate blog dealing with my thoughts on art and the human need to construct and build- for now it's simply earledswope.blogspot...
No wind was blowing but this tree attests to the abundance of wind on other days.
