Every year when the winter rains come I get excited about spring. It is my favorite time of year when the hillsides turn green and then burst with color. Mostly I notice the bright colored mustard flowers that brighten up my drive along the 101 freeway. This year they were especially abundant where there had been a fire in December. Such a bright reminder of the renewal that comes in spring. The hill had been charred to black and now was something of exquisite beauty. I also love to spend many days in search of other wildflowers like poppies and lupines. It is a beautiful time of year!!
What was it on your holiday that really made you feel awe? Was it a sunset? Perhaps a sunrise? Was it whales, or a spectacular color palette? Whatever it was, whatever it is that will inspire the feeling you desire, simply go to our SEARCH MENU and type in the word. For instance, type in “orange”. You’ll be transported to a gallery of photo art that is warm and inviting with hues of orange.
Have you ever done something that was a bit out of your comfort zone? I find that I feel most alive when I am pushing boundaries, learning something new and seeing new sights!
I recently returned from a trip that had me losing a little sleep a few weeks before I left. I would wake up in the night tossing and turning, feeling like I might have made a mistake. I signed up for a 5 day "pack trip" (i didn't even know those existed 😂) into the high Eastern Sierra's between Mammoth and Yosemite.
