Central California Talking Terrain


Such a tree...


 This oak tree is in Los Olivos, California, how old it is I do not know.
The occasion did not allow my climbing up, but that's what this tree said to me, "Climb on up and spend the day...read a book, dangle your feet, watch the birds, follow the clouds...dream a dream."
 
Such a sky...
Taking a morning walk in Arroyo Grande, the steeple caught my eye and said,
"Look up..."
                         
Such a flock...
                                                                          
 Looking  down ...The birds are not always on wing. Here they rest on rocks at  the water's edge at Pismo beach.

                                                Such a Sea...
Remind me to keep a fresh outlook...
three palm trees and the distant pier...the same ocean that I see every day and yet...

Such a field...
passing the crops on the west side of Salinas on the way home... the whiff of chemicals reminds me to eat organic...


Such a sunset

                                 I am grateful to be home again and reminded to take nothing for granted.

Thank you, Jeannette. Those words from the landscape were short and to the point, weren't they....
