Wishing for Rain

This is the Christianna Hunnicutt ceramic sculpture that sits on the ledge above my bed. This was taken when a storm was brewing this past winter (see the raindrops on the window?). Sadly we did not have enough of this precious rain and are now in a drought with summer only beginning. The number of fires consuming our state and forests are already staggering. I am putting this photo on my desktop to meditate on in hopes that we get through this drought.

I took a trip up the coast with some dear friends, Diane and Devra, who visited from Austin. I need to download my photos and size them so I can write about that trip next post. We had a fabulous time hiking and beach combing. We have a treasure trove of abalone shells and pieces along with shells and rocks we collected. Here are a few pictures but there's more to come!

I think the fires are terrifying and I keep you in my prayers. The pictures are cool and I look forward to seeing more.

Wow. Those pictures of tafoni really brought back memories of some great geology field trips along the coast. Where were they taken?
