I remain determined to visit all of the 175 state parks, trails and historic sites in Florida. In December, I officially crossed the three-digit threshold, and my current total stands at 101.
Erika birds California for the first time, discovering five new life birds during her first day at Berkeley.
I have seen a lot of sunsets in my life. My memory is peppered with bright red and gold skies along beaches, on walks home from campus, and across mountaintop vistas, but my experience with sunrises are much more sporadic. A few road trips, early morning flights here and there, but by and large I have missed one half of the world’s most beautiful sunlight displays.
This morning I woke up, turned on my cell phone, and knew what the sunset looked like in Japan. I saw a European Robin in England, all puffed up against the cold. I looked in awe at snowy peaks in the Himalayas. All without getting out of bed.
