South to Sunshine

Last week was spring break here in Washington, so we headed to southern California with Anna for a few college visits and also a requested trip to Disneyland.

Reminds me of the flowers in Burundi--very tropical and bright.

Surf and sand at Venice Beach.

Are your eyes doing funny things? No, just Van Gogh.

Yes, some cliches about California seem to be true!

In A Flash

In a flash, at a trumpet crash,
I am all at once what Christ is,
since he was what I am, and
this Jack, joke, poor potsherd,
patch, matchwood, immortal diamond,
is immortal diamond.

--Gerard Manley Hopkins
