Road Trip Home

Oh my! Has it really been this long since my last post?! It feels good to post, once again.

I have been very busy the past month or so. I have relocated back to CA, from WA, where I had been living the past ten month.

It was an extremely difficult decision to move back, but I needed to feel the sense of satisfaction and peace that a familiar and comforting environment brings one.

I am a native New Yorker, brought up on Long Island. I moved to CA in 1968 (where my mother and brother were living), in my mid-twenties. The majority of my life has been spent in CA. There is a lot to be said for familiarity and the comfortableness of environment.

My relocation back to my comfort zone has been more than positive. I feel at home, and my sense of peace is illuminated in more ways than one, each day.

A dear and caring friend of mine traveled by plane to the local airport in WA. She flew in to help me drive my car back to CA. There aren’t too many individuals in one’s life who would be so selfless. Within one hour of speaking to her about wanting to return, she had everything set up and ready to go. How often in our lives are we able to say that a friendship is so strong and caring, and that our friend will literally do anything possible for our happiness!

The photos were taken on our road trip back to CA. They are both of Mt. Shasta. The photo at the top was taken on the road…I was not driving. The photo on the bottom was taken from our hotel window, just before sunset.
