Road trips. There’s something magical about seeing a country out the window of a car. Take in the landscape, smell the air change from salty ocean to pine forests. Listen to good music. Stop for food somewhere and then keep driving. Often without a goal.

This is the California I saw during a few warm weeks last fall.

Rest in peace, Leonard Knight.

Love these. I'm headed to SF next week, California's such a good place to recharge and search one's soul.

Ive been back a couple times now to see the grocery carts again. Maybe they're supposed to look abandoned, but to me, they look cheeky. So William Carlos Williams-ishly self-important somehow. Love it. :)

A good testament that we all need to do more personal work!
