Under the Influence of Ektachrome

Once upon a time
Along a road less traveled
Where the air
     breathes easy
And the wind
     blows free
There survives
A remote sense of place
Where I would rather be

I embarked upon a
New journey of discovery

Would I miss all those
Years of an endless summer
Living, working, playing
Along a coastal southern
California environment?
I bid goodbyes to all
My familiar associations
In favor of embracing
The unknown, come what may.
