It is so beautiful it makes me weep, and certain passages continue to play in my mind when I am doing daily life away from the studio. That and seeing our Sonoma wild land roaring back to life after having been turned to ash in October is almost overwhelming. There is a carpet of California poppies, and the grasses are taller than we are.
The genius of Bach and the tenacity of Mother Nature, a two year old's birthday, and frequent gatherings with family, seeing my favorite people for lunch, a walk, or dinner -- that's what I call "Living it Up."
Grasses and delicate wildflowers spring from the burnt earth in Sonoma. Each week there are more, and baby oaks are showing up everywhere. I don't like change, but I am learning to love the new landscape.
