Copper-filled, Colorful and Psychedelic

Finally, I understand why so many people moved to California in the 60's and 70's. (also, wondering how I missed out!)


I'm back home now, relaxed and rejuvenated. (conspiring a multitude of ways of spending the rest of my days in warmth and sunshine)


Feeling grateful for the opportunity of watching the Universe manifest her psychedelic light show every night. (right outside my motel window in Hermosa Beach!)


A much needed respite that ground my daily life to a halt, bringing reflection and a new sense of self..... time to move on. (I'm definitely ready for the next phase! Bring it!)


A journey well timed for a woman moving toward her sunset years. May all my days be as colorful as a copper-filled, California sunset! (notice I said "moving toward" not "in!")

  1. I am so glad you had the chance to rejuvenate. Gorgeous sunsets, great analogy with the approaching sunset years. May they all be grand and breathtaking and may you never ever be in your sunset years.

    My daughter took great delight in pointing out a sign at Goodwill a couple of weeks ago. It offered a 10% discount for seniors over 55 years old. I didn't get the humor until she reminded me that I had just turned 55 and asked if I wanted the fifty cent discount for the $5 wicker basket. I am so not a senior!

  3. I realize this might be TMI but our boy-child was conceived just a few miles S. of Hermosa Beach. ;)

  6. When you figure out how to move forward to a warmer horizon of copper sunsets, let me know how you did it, cause I'm going to, sister. :-) It's 15 degrees out tonight... ENOUGH already.

  7. I was born in California in the 1960s, but I'm always looking for ways to leave ... the grass is always greener! Glad you enjoyed Hermosa and are rejuvenated and ready to take on the world.

  8. Wow, thanks for the virtual sunsets. Very nice reminder that things will not always be cold and icy and dark...and cold. Just found your blog...I'll be back to look around some more.

  10. Oh bliss, I'll just have to live through your blog for now. We are freezing our buns off here in Nova Scotia. I guess it's character building. From the looks of your very entertaining blog you seem to have plenty of character,though, so you have earned a relaxing warm vacation.
