On Patience

July 18th (started in San Simeon, finished at home, one month after my first entry) On Patience             We spent quite a bit of time among redwoods on this trip, as we always do on the coastal route, and I found myself paying attention to them because I’d been talking about them with a friend…

Home at Last
