It’s funny, as I was preparing for my trip to California, I found a smile spreading over my lips as I explained that I would be traveling there for business. That is the truth… but my work is my pleasure. I cannot thank the women (and man) that took my classes enough. As well as the owner(s) and staff at both Plum Goods and Porch. It is humbling, to be the guide through the some-what torturous process of learning to make a sea glass mobile in the presence of such wonderful people. The good folks who attend my classes always teach, and share, and give me a renewed sense of community and empowerment. Thank you, thank you. I look forward to coming back again, and to meeting new and equally extraordinary people.
It was, truly, an amazing trip. I saw a pod of at least three humpback whales, complete with a juvenile, joyously breaching the surface. I witnessed this, at my favorite beach while sitting, and chatting for the first time in months, with two very dear friends. It was an exquisite moment, such a rare thing to witness from shore. I will be back, Santa Barbara, hopefully very soon.
