I have been reminded recently that life is a journey.  Sometimes the ground is flat but, with most good hikes, there are ups and downs.

Along the way, you meet people: you share experiences, you laugh, you cry… you live.  I have been finding pockets of peace recently.  Weekends in Mendocino with my girlfriends…. Learning to be alone….  Nature.  Nothing has made me happier recently than sitting alone in a hot tub, half-reading my book and watching whales migrate.  A red-headed woodpecker alighted 5 feet from me, happily pick-pecking away and I knew I was at peace.  And that peace cloaked me and made me happy.

And one day, I just stared at the ocean with a dear friend and thought about how lucky I am.
