One of the advantages of being an early riser is to be able to witness the most magnificent sunrises, the one photographed below was breathtaking, the colors were spectacular. I talked about the West Point Inn before. This century-old inn is located on Mount Tamalpais, is reachable only by foot or bikes, and has the most amazing views of the San Francisco Bay. It was build for people coming up with a gravity cable car which has long been dismantled, and luckily for us it has survived for all of us to enjoy. I recently spent two nights up there with my family and a group of friends. We cooked, we laughed, we hiked, we had meaningful conversations. Life is good.
I am wary of making New Year's resolutions because I rarely keep them, but I can't stop wishing. My big wish for myself is to find a meaningful and fulfilling job this year. A job where I can use my creativity, be challenged and also have fun.
My wish for the earth, this magnificent place we inhabit, is that people and their leaders will wake up and realize that we need to slow down our depleting of natural resources, use less, re-use, and re-purpose more. I wish all my readers would make few changes in their lives, even small, to use less plastic, eat less meat, use less energy, and spread the word with their actions.
