“We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
Through the unknown, remembered gate
When the last of earth left to discover
Is that which was the beginning;
At the source of the longest river
The voice of the hidden waterfall
And the children in the apple-tree
Not known, because not looked for
But heard, half-heard, in the stillness
Between two waves of the sea.”

—T.S. Eliot, from “Little Gidding”

Dreams do come true, if you have the courage to allow them into being in their own way/time. Join me for an exploration around very walkable Santa Barbara, the American Riviera, where I am pet sitting sweet Dulce the cat, enjoying long delightful beach walks, and wondering how did I get to be so lucky to experience what it is to live right by the beach. Oh, wait, I know that – I dreamt it into being 😉

Taking myself on an adventure…
Lift off and fly along…
That view… ♥ 
Those colors… ♥ 
These beach walks… ♥ 
These textures… ♥ 
That landscape… ♥ 

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”

 Albert Einstein
The details… ♥ 
The downtown walks… ♥ 
That coastline… ♥ 
These beaches… ♥ 
The light and the air… ♥ 
The cat life… ♥ 
The ocean… ♥ 
The inner/outer explorations… ♥ 

“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.”

― Anais Nin
