Hey ya’ll.

After a much needed social media break (sans Facebook – which might become a permanent separation) – I’m back and feeling refreshed.

Bill and I took to the California roadways in the past month.

We left a snowy Lake Tahoe in Nevada to the rain soaked and blooming neighboring state – blanketed in 50 shades of green and everything else on the color wheel.

In Sacramento the water nearly lapped Highway 50 and ducks by the thousand floated in their glory.

Working our way to Point Reyes via Hwy 37 and 1 the narrow windy roads overflowed in lushness.

“Oh my gosh – look at that.” must have passed our lips 100 times – it’s a wonder that we didn’t wreck.

The ocean sparkled, colors popped, pebbles glistened and the ice plants reached for the skies.

The desert was alive with yellow and purple as far as the eye could see. Mother nature nurtured.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Lottery Dreams

In the little town of Woodfords, California (population 150) people from the surrounding communities of California and Nevada lined up to buy a ticket for a 1 in 292.2 million chance at winning the Powerball.

It was quite a day in the sleepy town – police car front and center – frontage road closed to thru traffic and a flashing road sign warned about an event ahead.

People stood in line in the 25 degree temperature dreaming about what they would do with their winnings and sharing stories.

We bought tickets for Saturday’s drawing and a few more for next Wednesday’s just in case there is not a winner on Saturday – figuring the line would be miles long.

Good luck everyone.
