"What had they been doing all those years?"

This was our 180 degree view at Bodega Bay for our girls' weekend earlier this month.

Notice the lack of fog.

We timed the wildflowers perfectly. That's Point Reyes at the far left point.

Ann Patchett, Bel Canto

"The rest of them said, no, they didn't play. People began recounting stories of a couple of lessons or the lessons of their children. It seem to Gen (and he included himself in this assessment) that never had a more uncultured group of men been taken hostage. What had they been doing all these years that no one had bothered with such an important instrument? They all wished they could play, if not before then, certainly now."

There was no piano playing in Bodega and very little longing for anything more than being.

Sigh. I love doing nothing and just being. It's my favorite hobby.
