Caspar California - 31 March 2013
Rainy Green Easter
Leading up to the final walk-away tomorrow morning, every time I come back up the path, I appreciate the hereness of my home place -- an Austrian friend calls it my "treasure spot" and she gets that just right.
It seems almost perverse to leave this perfect place ... if not for the Merrie Monarch, we would stay for apple blossom season. Today we get the parade of a spring showery day marching in off the Pacific. A gentle snowstorm of plum blossoms blows by, having completed their work attracting early pollinators. The seasons here are distinct yet clement.
I enjoy posting travel thoughts, even if in a "staycation." Wonder if I could resist the unnecessary over-busy-ness that seems to be a part of home. By going away, I get (perforce) the distance I need to regain perspective on this ancestral home.
