You Are Here

Last week walking home I had one of those realizations that sound kind of stupid in retrospect but seem incredibly profound in the moment. I realized that I spend so much time waiting and planning and working around life's little inconveniences that I sometimes forget: My life is here, right here, right now.

And so am I.

And it ain't all that bad.

Photo to enjoy:

Don't ask me what kind of flower this is. It seemed to be all over the place in California. A Google search for "flower that looks like bird" is unhelpful.

Yep, that's what it is, all right! Silly me. Thanks!

Oops! Mike beat me to it.
The "Bird of Paradise" is everywhere, here in CA. It's odd looking.. yet lovely.

I was going to write to tell you about the Bird of Paradise -- that it's the "Bird of Paradise" -- but someone beat me to it. Still -- kinda cool that it made you think of a bird, I think (no, really!). Does a honeydew look like a "honey dew"? Exactly. But a Bird of Paradise does... And that's cool!
