Dreams

We had a very active day today. In our dreams. We didn’t even go outside, being content to watch some PBS, throw open the windows for a while for air and light, and nap a lot. There’s some mixture in our dreams, of the invigorating Winter we enjoyed up North and the bucolic Summer (78F) here today. It looked a lot like yesterday, as in this shot back at the airport, UCSB and Our Town after we turned toward the islands.

I didn’t notice until later that the camera was set to maximum “ISO” speed, so until snapping San Miguel Island the pix are all a bit messed up. Still, hopefully you get the idea. Here’s another view, from far offshore looking back.

Then there was the view East along the island chain past San Miguel, with the coast from Santa Barbara to Ventura in the distance. Wish you could see it more the way we did, but again maybe this gives you some idea.

I take a deep breath looking at that. So many scenes like this permeate our dreams, after only a few years of flying. Wonder what my dreams would be like if I’d begun flying in high school as I so yearned to do back then…
