Santa Barbara

I like lying on a quilt in the grass next to my granddaddy's redwood tree. The sun is shining and I see a pair of sea gulls. Last night I decided, on a whim, to wake up close to midnight when we drove up to the house here, and I chatted and smiled at everybody for a long time. I didn't feel like sleeping at all. From the back seat of the car yesterday evening on our way here, I saw the full moon rising above the hills on my right as the sun set into the ocean beyond the fields to my left (my seat faces backwards, remember), with nothing but black-to-blue-to-purple-to-orange sky in between. It's so beautiful here where I live!

PS, my first tooth is coming in, and my gum hurts sometimes.
