A Day of Thanks
I spent Thanksgiving in Santa Barbara enjoying the company of family & friends. I am blessed and very thankful to be surrounded by so many talented artists. It's always a gift when you are allowed - or perhaps allowed is the wrong word... when you feel comfortable and safe enough that you can simply choose to be you. California is beautiful any time of year... but I find the skies in fall to be the most beautiful. Standing on the familiar deck of my second home - I can look out off the cliff, over the channel to Santa Cruz Island, the largest of the Channel Islands, to see the sky explode with color as the cool damp fog rolls in. Santa Barbara is such a beautiful place. A little slice of heaven really.

Is that a cat's tail I see hiding at the bottom of the 6th photo? Looks like you had a great holiday, Happy late-Thanksgiving!

@caricakes - Ha! Great eye! Yes and no... it's a tail. But from a black lab! This is the house of my family away from my home - on the East Coast - my surrogate California family... that's why I refer to this as my second home. I'm always welcome here. The owners love cats but are allergic. So they have two of the most spoiled dogs you've ever seen. :D
