Travel in a Moment
I'm not quite sure why, but when I went to get in my car and noticed these flowers stretching over the fence in front of where I had parked, I suddenly felt as though I'd been transported south to California. It may have had to do with the stuffy summer evening, or the arborvitae plants lining the fence beneath this determined branch, but whatever it was, it was quite effective. In a mere moment I'd traveled to a place I've been so often and times I might have forgotten in the attic of my mind. In an instant the cobwebs had been swept away, and there I was, at a mall with my friends in Ontario...in my grandmother's backyard in Riverside...on my street as a small child in San Diego. Curious how sometimes unexpected moments lead to unexpected places.
