A respite from the grueling week makes it imperative to decompress the mind and feed the heart, soul and spirit with nature, truth and beauty. These are basic goals for my spouse and myself, to take a zippy ride on the road…
I can’t explain it, except, it’s a liberating experience, driving out from the city to the open- space road. We always have the high expectations of encountering uniquely magnificent discoveries!
With a O% precipitation and 30% chance of rain,(http://www.weather.com)Sunday was begging for us to be on the road to Central Coast, and the outcome was astounding!
An enormously, long period of drought in California, dried out hillsides and foliage tawdry and wilted. Today, we witnessed endless miles of velvet green on mountains, seventy shades of insanely beautiful green on the wayside, trees, hills and vales.
The rewards are immeasurable… any road trip is always different from the last time even if it could lead to the same place…As a famous poet once stated:
…the journey ,
Not the destination matters.
~ T.S. Elliot
