Great California Oak

California has too much growth, too much sprawl, too many people, too many cars, too many budget problems, too many wild fires, and their politics are too weird, but love is alive with

a landscape
 and an oak tree
 rock outcroppings
and whiffs of clouds in a blue, blue sky
 tawny grasses on rolling hills
warm  air
and dry summer fragrances


"Knowing trees, I understand the meaning of patience.
Knowing grass, I can appreciate persistence."

~ Hal Borland, Countryman: A Summary of Belief

  1. It's been many years since I've seen that landscape; I loved it then, I love it still. Even in a photograph.
