Let me know what you think about this photograph.
WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge asks participants to focus on dreaming. Immediately, I thought about a simple image that is layered in meaning about life’s dreamy moments of adventure and longing.
A dear friend and I took my grandchildren to Santa Cruz inlet where they scaled the beach with excitement. They eagerly reached the shoreline, and the scene reminded me of a silent film with stilled voices and dramatic action.
It was their first time to touch Pacific (frigid) waters. It was a stirring moment with lots of possibilities that the West Coast offers–a coastline 3,000 miles away from our beaches in Delaware.
I am reminded of the 1960s song “California Dreamin” by the Mamas & the Papas, which perfectly fits this weeks challenge and my photograph. Click here to see the video on YouTube.
