Ojai on expired film. Polaroid memories if you will--instant, tangible love.
I reminded the hubby of how, when we first came here 12 years ago and drove into the valley through what seemed like endless, winding dirt roads and golden pastures, we almost believed our GPS got us lost. Like, really, REALLY lost! We couldn't believe there was life beyond the hills.
But life there was...
Farmers market Sundays and trail hike life... Hot springs, lakes, and beach days flying kites... Long shadows, pink sunsets....
Sun flares and dappled light
flickering beneath the wheels of my bike...
The buzzing, the humming,
the wood peckers pecking....
all day swimming,
parks and playgrounds
and fingers flipping through broken pages of used books...
These make up just some of the Ojai joys slow dreams are made of. Since then, we've come back every year to unplug and find our quiet.
