There was a week in northern CA (Marin County)
and another week at a conference in southern CA
And even while being immersed in worries about
the world situation,
prospects for an adult child
or details of child abuse,
domestic violence, childhood trauma and resiliency,
there was beauty everywhere;
and it helped.
With so many miles of gorgeous coast line,
it's easy to forget that northern CA is mainly farmland.
I had the good fortune to have access to a farm for a portion of time
and the freedom to wander.
And it was lambing season!
but, if that's not your thing,
there was other requisite livestock for additional diversion.
But, I'm not going to lie,
it's always the sea that holds the biggest claim on my heart -
and the less developed the better.
San Diego has its own beauty
but what I enjoyed the most was seeing it in so many different lights
All in all,
it went by too quickly...
and I'm home.
And there's one benefit to home that CA doesn't offer!
Be it ever so humble,
there's no place like home!
