Good Morning, Bon Jour!
How are you? Dull and overcast here, so what, now that the eyes are open and my thoughts have turned to you, I remember this camper I found the other day when I was researching for an earlier blog. Can you just feel the positive vibes from this cheerful little nest on wheels. With the nicer weather, spring in the air, the tulips will soon be in full bloom along the canal. Food vendors will be out in the main tourist areas, the smell of fries and burgers wafting through the air, tempting the runners and the walkers. I see the ice cream shops are open again along the main street, sure sign that spring is here.
This is the California Coast, what a journey this is. I had the pleasure of doing this highway with my sister back a few years. There was just so much to take in that I know that even if I do it another several times, I still will marvel and make new discoveries each time I travel through the area. For sure, when you are on the highway, driving along, this is not the view you have. Each wind in the road is another vista, another “oh Wow”, you live it and move on. Have you noticed that what we learn easily or master effortlessly tends to be enjoyed, assimilated and then we move on. Its forgotten. However, lessons in life that come back to haunt us, or replay for us that test our inner resolve, or determination to acquire or “have”, not always a “party/good time”. We struggle, we cry, we agonize, we can even have bouts of despair. Some well meaning friend says, “you’ll be fine, tomorrow is another day”, intellectually you may hear the words, but your just not “feeling it”
Back to the cheerful little camper at the top of the page. Since writing this blog, I’ve met several people who have told me they want to own a little home on wheels and they want to pack up and travel. Surprisingly not only couples, but a lot of single retired women. Families raised, empty nesters who want to just pick up and go. Do what they have wanted to do for years, Another blogger who just joined us recently, has her little camper all picked out. smiles and waves, you know who you are, bravo! We travel our journeys step by step, it is due to the many hardships we’ve gone through that we have the inner strength to take the actions we need to follow our dreams.
I thank each and everyone of you reading along with me, for being part of my world, I so appreciate you all, I enjoy hearing from you, my “door” is always open. You are the sunshine in my life =^_^+. These flowers are for you… enjoy your day.. Sending big hugs, packed with multiple blessings and love. Oyashikiri
