Change of Scene

Change of scenery, change in the weather, change in routine, all much needed. We escaped for three days, hiking with good friends at Big Sur and at Pinnacles National Park, where the above photo was taken, and we have come home feeling refreshed. One evening we sat on a wooden deck by an olive tree in Carmel Valley, sipping champagne, listening to crickets, watching lightning in the distance as a storm rolled in. I will always remember my friend in an orange dress running out to dance in the rain, and how sweet the wet world smelled, how revived and hopeful.
