Thoughts and observations on my way back to the default world--
It really is the Very Best Way Ever to wake up.
I get teary-eyed every time we start to drive away from the desert because it *could* be the last time.
The sky along I-5 today looks like an aquatint or a watercolor wash painting.
The older semi rig drivers are the best to draft behind because they know how to keep a constant speed for miles and miles and miles.
The Pleasant Land of Counterpane (go look it up) lies on the west side of I-5 between Lost Hils and Avenal. Really. After you look it up, drive there and see :-)
