Been on vacation for two weeks. I meant to do a post saying I’d be gone and wouldn’t be posting for awhile, but it sort of fell through the cracks during all those last minute preparations. I don’t have a laptop or anything, so I just checked e-mail whenever I could.
Spent a few days in Sonoma County (CA), where we moved from a year and eight months ago. Like they say, “you can never go home again.” Our quaint little neighborhood in Forestville sure has mutated in twenty months. It used to be a street with one-story houses, and each one looked different. Now, just on our end of the street, there are three huge McMansions. The size difference is bad enough, but all three of them are just giant gray 40-foot-tall cinder blocks. There goes the neighborhood.
Spent two days in California’s Central Coast area — Pismo Beach, Moro Bay — and then on to Arizona. We stayed on the Hopi and Navajo reservations for several days. The Hopi region is an incredible Power spot. I’ve never been to any of the “in” Power places like Sante Fe or Sedona, but the Hopi reservation is one powerful place. Everything there just feels “different.” Hope the New Age Crystal-gazing crowd doesn’t “discover” it.
I’ve stayed away from the news these past two weeks, all except for the blaring headlines you can’t avoid. There'll be plenty of material for upcoming posts.
