Blessing of the Animals @ Resting Waters Aquamation
Oct 4 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Resting Waters, along with celebrant Danna Schmidt of Waypoint Ceremonies, invites you to our Blessing Of The Animals. Taking inspiration from St. Francis of Assisi, we ask you to bring a photo or a totem that represents your beloved companion for our altar.

“May we see the miracles of life and love in all the animals with which we share our lives:
in the cold nose of a dog,
in the warmth of a cat on your lap,
in the wondrous otherness of the hamster and the songbird,
in the graceful beauty of the goldfish.
Bless them all as they bless us.”

This event is for all animals that occupy our hearts and homes, living or past.

We hope you will join us for a blessed evening.


This event is part of Deathsploration month in western Washington.
We’re all gonna die, let’s talk about it, a little.

Deathsploration is a month-long effort to increase conversation about death and dying in Washington. Beginning on October 1 and running through November 2, community organizations and businesses in western Washington will work in partnership to create opportunities for engagement through education, art, dance, movement, death cafés, community outreach, workshops, and more.

In the United States, the topic of death and dying is not commonly paired with living. Deathsploration is an opportunity to reestablish the normalcy of death, a subtle reminder that talking about and preparing for death will not cause one’s death. Similarly, not talking about death will not keep it away. It is our hope that the exploration of death–through all the senses and on our own terms–will help people on the way to a good death.

Words, Writers & Southwest Stories: Jeff Smoot @ Southwest Library
Oct 10 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

At the Southwest Branch library, join us as we welcome climbing author Jeff Smoot, who will be sharing stories and images from his new memoir “Hangdog Days: Conflict, Change, and the Race for 5.14”

Jeff Smoot’s new book chronicles the era when rock climbing exploded in popularity, attracting a new generation of talented climbers eager to reach new heights via harder routes and faster ascents. This contentious, often humorous period gave rise to sport climbing, climbing gyms, and competitive climbing indelibly changing the culture of the sport, transforming it into what we know today.

One of those young climbers, writer Jeff Smoot, traces the development over time of traditional climbing “rules,” enforced first through peer pressure, then later through intimidation and sabotage. In the late ’70s, several climbers began introducing new tricks including “hangdogging”— hanging on gear to practice moves— considered cheating by the old guard. As more climbers broke ranks with traditional style, this new gymnastic approach pushed the limits of climbing from 5.12 to 5.13. When French climber Jean-Baptiste Tribout ascended the 5.14a To Bolt or Not to Be at Smith Rock in 1986, he broke a previously thought impenetrable barrier. John Bachar, Todd Skinner, Ray Jardine, Lynn Hill, Mark Hudon, Tony Yaniro, Alan Watts, and others star in this lively period of the sport.

Presented in partnership with the Southwest Seattle Historical Society.

Library events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is not required.

Une Bonne Mort: Washington’s Death and Dying Conference @ Alki Masonic Hall, West Seattle
Nov 1 @ 8:30 am – 4:00 pm

Join us at this one-day conference for the living, on caring for the dying and the dead.

This educational death and dying seminar is dedicated to helping us better care for and honor the autonomy of the dying.

Details are available on the conference website: unebonnemort.

Tickets are limited and include soup & salad lunch and limited parking.


This event is part of Deathsploration month in western Washington.
We’re all gonna die, let’s talk about it, a little.

Deathsploration is a month-long effort to increase conversation about death and dying in Washington. Beginning on October 1 and running through November 2, community organizations and businesses in western Washington will work in partnership to create opportunities for engagement through education, art, dance, movement, death cafés, community outreach, workshops, and more.

In the United States, the topic of death and dying is not commonly paired with living. Deathsploration is an opportunity to reestablish the normalcy of death, a subtle reminder that talking about and preparing for death will not cause one’s death. Similarly, not talking about death will not keep it away. It is our hope that the exploration of death–through all the senses and on our own terms–will help people on the way to a good death.

Trivia every Wednesday night at 8:30 pm. It goes until a little after 10 pm. It’s $2 per person, and we have no maximum or minimum team size. We usually get between 75 and 115 people. I give out cash prizes to the top 3 teams and bottles of champagne for the bottom three teams. Every season I have a special seasonal challenge that culminates in a $3 per person championship night.
