Ahhh… Thanks so much Mary! I love this and I feel so nourished by your words!
Thank you, Lea! Isn’t it great living in a naturally air-conditioned town?
Love how this rings sooo true right now!
Fog IS our friend (and the redwoods’ too!)
Thank you for paying tribute to an oft overlooked blessing.
Beautiful! With the threat of fire always on my mind during these recent summers, the fog that returns after a heat wave always feels like a tender kiss from God. Thank you Mary!
What a beautiful way to put it! I completely agree.
