Here I offer some highlights of our adventures. Check back every so often to see the world one moment at a time.
Hiking with my husband through Santa Clara, California's Black Mountain open space preserve late last May, my husband and I walked out of the Bay area hustle in search of silence. Having endured an especially dark and frigged European winter, the view along the trail felt like we were seeing the first lazy sprawl of spring's sleepy arms shrugging off the old blanket, revealing the new. Baby green grass just starting to peak through the spent old growth, gray clouds curling over dark hills, all hovering under a bright sky; Black Mountain no longer.
