Play the video and listen while you read. That is how I wrote the post anyways...
Going to California
Not now. But probably soon. I’ll be going to California.
I know I promised you all a snorkeling post. But it ain’t gonna happen.
Soon. Soon I’ll be back to snorkeling and body boarding and walking on beaches and writing verses in journals.
Driving around the island and taking videos of the scenes at the sides of the road while I play something I like and want to share on the car CD player. Make you feel like you were here.
Make me feel like I’m in the moment.
My husband’s stepmother passed away last week. The funeral is tomorrow.
My mom in California is at a crossroads. She’s 82 and a hoarder. We (and her doctor) have been trying to get her to use her long term health care and go into an assisted living home for over two years. But she is stubborn and has some mental health issues. Seriously.
So she has waited until her luck’s run out and her debt is huge.
It’s a mess.
A mess that will have to be dealt with soon. Somehow.
I’ll be going to California where, even after 27 years here in Hawaii, where so many of my youthful memories are cast along the sides of the roads.
I’ll put some Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd on when I get in the rental car and I’ll drive up the PCH from LA X and when I look out at the ocean or at the sagebrush on the hills the floodgates will come undone.
As soon as school is out mom, I’ll be coming to California.
Link on up and take us traveling.
