Glorious SUN

A  L  O  H  A !

“How often have I 
lain beneath rain 
on a strange roof, 
thinking of home.” 
William Faulkner

“I used to dream about 
escaping my ordinary life, 
but my life was never ordinary. 
I had simply failed to notice 
how extraordinary it was. 
Likewise, I never imagined 
that home might be 
something I would miss.” 
                      Ransom Riggs

“Perhaps home is 
not a place 
but simply an 
irrevocable condition.” 
                       James Baldwin


It has been rainy.
Like one storm
after another.
My old friend 
Pacific, just up to
her tricks
But California needs
 rain and everyone has a
good attitude about it.
There were those
freeze warnings,
and temps in the 
30's a while back;
I didn't sign up
for THAT!
But it was unusual
for The Bay Area,
and we are back in 
the pleasant 50's.
I'll take it - all good.

And SPRING is a
real thing here!
That will just be

Well, today is
Gloriously SUNNY!
Blues are blue,
greens are green,
vistas unlimited,
and this Hawaii gal
is blissed out on
All of It~

Just checking in.
So far - so great!

Hope your new year
is the same!
Fondly, cloudia

We have glorious sun after lots and lots of torrential rain down here in San Diego, too, but I didn't take superb shots of the sun... You did it for me ;) I love today's quotes. Glad you're feeling at home by your dock on the bay.

Glad Cali and Texas have been getting rain. I know they've needed it
