Love, Rain and the Cactus Heart

It’s not every day that a cactus teaches you about love…

So, I finally made it to California. It was a promise I made to the world via my high school yearbook, that California was in my future. That’s what it said under the picture of the long-haired, seventeen year old soon-to-be high school graduate.

Awaken to your real self. Expect to find the answers from within. That’s the only place you’ll ever find them.

It’s a great day to be you!
