I saw a shooting star, and made a wish. I dreamed that I kissed Bob Dylan. I had a massage in a room that overlooked the ocean...the sound of the waves seemed to correspond with the hand movements of the masseuse. I was naked in the hot springs and felt totally at ease. I sipped a glass of wine, as I read on the cabin porch, while my husband sat next to me and played guitar...a perfect moment.
We could see the Milky Way at night. There were quail, deer. The marine layer was unearthly. I met Angelina for lunch and we took in the view at Nepenthe. I had one of the best meals of my life ...cold pea soup...grilled lobster...butterscotch pie... The mountains glowed pink as the sun went down on the day of my birth. The best.
