As I consider my journey, I think I did the Hawaiian thing, lots of adventure, discover, travel, as the Polynesians did, guided by their hearts, navigating with the stars. With that said, Santa Barbara was an EXCELLENT homebase. Momma Nature is number one for me, and living in a smaller community close to the sea, close to the foothills and hiking, was essential to the journey. Beauty as my homebase for all things creative.
