"Give fools their gold, 
and knaves their power;
let fortune's bubbles rise and fall;
who sows a field,
or trains a flower, or plants a tree,
is more than all."

“All journeys have 
secret destinations
of which the traveler 
is unaware.”

 Novato CA [Olompali Mt]

 "Olompali was a high status residence and 
permanent hub of the MIWOK community.

The Olompali community or tribelet once
comprised 25 square miles of territory,
 and supported a number of 
permanent and semi-permanent 
villages within this territory."

This area was the most heavily populated
by First Nations [Coast Miwok]
north of the Rio Grande.


And so I learn a
new history,
new names, new
Glad you came along
for the ride!
