Red tailed hawk and small bird @r_rybickey (at Santa Cruz somewherea)
This owl is a friend that lives in La Verne. I can find him at sunset on the same tree around sunset. I can hoot and he’ll screech back. I tell him that the break in my heart is healing, I’m in good health and good spirits. Then I just sit and listen to the owl and the trees complimented by the breeze. Then I finish my hike and life goes on! (at Marshall Canyon Regional Park)
"God gave us the gift of life; it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well."
-Voltaire (at The Bridge to Nowhere)
"One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today."

"I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes."
