Happy Mother's Day!
Rachael and I took a road trip the other day, through the high desert, the mountain pass at the Grapewine, ending up in Ojai, a place we have wanted to visit together for a while.
In the 1970s and early 80s, I spent ten May vacations in this lovely town. It's a spiritual place, home to among others the Krishnamurti Foundation of America, the Krotona Institute of Theosophy, and a Buddhist Temple.
I'm very busy right now, both with springtime chores around here and visiting with friends, some of whom I haven't seen for years. And then spending the day after the fun or the work resting. I get so tired, but you can't let that stop you from having fun. Right? My point being, I haven't got that much time to think up blog stories and take pictures. But now I feel lucky to have a lot of pictures from Ojai to share. I will post some on Sundays for a while.
I love to see a cactus in bloom and this one was really special.
I've never seen one so healthy and with such lovely yellow flowers before.
The views from Meditation Mount must be among the most beautiful in the world and I will share them, the town, the cute shops, the famous bookstore, the beyond gorgeous oak trees, and even some rusty items I found.
Again, have a wonderful Mother's Day!
