Green—forest green, hunter green, emerald green— green has always been my favorite color. Maybe growing up in an ever-green pine forest had something to do with that.
Since moving to Monterey, I’ve fallen in love with blue.
Robin’s egg and turquoise skies turn moody, swathed in silver mists of fog.
Cobalt waves become mermaids’ tears as they crash into the rocky shores and foam onto sandy beaches.
Stunning views have inspired generations of artists, writers, poets. The urge to capture such beauty with words or images is an irresistable siren’s call.
I am so grateful that I get to live in such a place. I know there are people who will never have a chance to climb a mountain or stand, breathless, rocked by the beauty of the Bay.
My heart goes out to them. To everyone who’s got the blues.
