This is me... IN SPIRIT ;~)p.
Looking SO forward to my trip back to Humboldt with my son!
The redwood trees.
It's been 20 years since I graduated from HSU. That place holds so many amazing memories for me.
Friends, families, fun, forests and Facebook. Five F-words I'll happily shout from the rooftops. Add food and well, you've pretty much made my day. Thanks to Facebook for reconnecting us again.
It's been about the same length of time since I've seen most of my friends. I have no doubt we'll fall back into place in our friendships, and our kids will have a blast regardless.
Hoping for a nice beach day in there somewhere... and DEFINITELY a hike (daily? we'll be so close!) in the forest!
I've been googling pics of the redwoods so I could show my son how AWESOME they are. I was really trying to convey their grandeur. I'm so looking forward to seeing them! I think I'll be blown away all over again and I hope, at some point, I can capture their magnificence and bring back a good photo or two for the walls of the condo.
As I was surfing the web, I randomly stumbled across a website: Cathedral Grove, where I found all of the pictures featured in this post. These people are the PASSIONATE protectors of our beautiful redwoods.
While browsing the site, I came across this pretty amazing live art demonstration for the cause. It's beautiful and eerie and creates an impact.
I'm seriously looking forward to reconnecting with the redwoods and their power.
I've been feeling power-full lately.
Feeling good. In control, strong—creatively, mentally, spiritually—physically active, more healthy, engaged, giving my best, in the moment, filling time with quality experiences ... that's how I'm defining it these days.
I'm going to try to do something that feels good every day. I hope you'll do the same. We all deserve to feel good!
