I am haunted, driven to re-live each moment as it swirls through both my conscious and sub-conscious...Read More
September in the Santa Cruz mountains is a magical time. I could drive the roads all day, watching beams of sunlight pour through tall redwoods, and finding little enchanted trails into dense bits of forest.
