Days 17 – 23: The Log

The sky in the Armstrong Woods in  California.

Armstrong Woods

Hushed. The three-note call of a single bird. Hushed again. Even our footsteps were swallowed by the immensity of the place. My son and I entered the Armstrong Redwoods Reserve chattering and then found ourselves whispering. Finally, we fell silent.

I’ve returned from California with a bundle of new leads on paying work, a multitude of ideas, a revised plan for The Goodness Project (more on that later) and a sense of quiet. First the ocean, then the redwoods. Amazing.

I took this photo on Tuesday at the reserve, which is about a mile from my son’s house. No wonder he delights in living up there.

    Beautiful photo! It’s so gorgeous there…can’t wait to hear all about the trip. Welcome home!

  2. Welcome back. I look forward to hearing your ideas. And yes, no wonder your son wants to live so close to beautiful country like that.
