I have to say, I'm pretty taken with Santa Cruz right now. This trip was such a mystery. I wasn't sure what it would bring. I was going home without any real purpose, no business, no holiday, just a regular old fashion visit. And the timing could not have been odder. I was reeling from Bello's health issues and Josh's news that he and Ann are having a baby. Huh, strange time to leave Portland and head home. But home I went. And look what I have found. I feel good here. I feel at peace. Something has changed in me. I am content to bounce around in the little white truck knowing that whatever comes next will be good and true.
