A Sequoia Tree and Me

A Sequoia Tree and Me

Good Evening, God!

Ah, a wonderful Road Trip . . . we are just finishing up part 8 of a 10 part trip. Our oldest daughter, Suzanne, after Tisk Tisking about WHAT WERE WE THINKING did agree that it would have been hard to do anything much different. It all started out with planning to go to my Stanford Reunion. Then daughter Sandy pointed out that she was running the Nike Women’s half marathon the weekend before in San Francisco and wouldn’t we come up a few days early and cheer her on.

Of course we wanted to do that. Then we had a few days before the reunion and so I invited ourselves up to see my brother and sister-in-law in Grass Valley. Then back down to Stanford for my reunion. After that I had planned four nights in Sequoia. But my wonderful husband Kit said  Hey! Let’s go to Yosemite too! Actually, God, he insisted.

And amazingly enough there was a vacancy at the Wawona Lodge! So, we saw Half Dome and drove up to Glacier Point and lunched at the Ahwahnee. Lovely memories as we had honeymooned in Yosemite.

Then down to Sequoia and magnificent old trees . . . 3,000 years old . . . amazing! I wondered God, if the trees talk to each other. It felt to me as if there was communion — if not communication — there in the rich, full, silence. The silence felt like music that I couldn’t quite make out. I loved it.

Next was Santa Barbara for a visit with Kit’s brother Dick and wife Larie –plus brunch with our niece Judy and her husband Steve. So good to connect! We are too scattered. Then a wonderful two day birthday celebration in L.A. with Suzy and then a flight over to Tucson to see Sandy and grandson Ian . . . Mark is at Rice and Dave is in Portugal.

Each stop filled with joyful memories and hundreds of photos, too. I am ever so grateful, God! Thank You!
