I’ve spent the last five days in Sunny California visiting an old and very dear friend. We had a wonderful time together.
We went to the Orange County fair and the Laguna Beach Sawdust Festival. We shopped and ate and walked and talked – it was wonderful –
But except for the carefully manicured vineyards and front lawns, the landscape was barren and brown.
As the plane got closer to the Portland airport, I could see Mount Hood and Mount Rainier. I could see green on the ground below. And I was home!
