today, I’m thinking back and smiling
at the oft comical story line of my life
from the lofty vantage point
of the age of fifty-three

then I go outside and look up
at the wide open majestic California sky
while standing, insignificant and small
in the shadow of a very tall palm tree

and this isn’t exactly the spot
where I had once hoped to stand
but somehow this is where I am
and inevitably what will be, will be

    Beautiful words and photo and I’m just one year younger, so cheers to staying young at heart! 🙂

    oh, was it Oscar Wilde who said, “We’re all in the gutter, some are just looking up”? oh, well, you were looking up, was why you saw the palm tree, ahaha. 😉

    hello, sir… have a good coming weekend… 🙂

      I was going to title this one “que sera, sera under the palm tree”. I always loved the que sera sera song.

      You have a good weekend too, sweet San.
