WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge gives me the opportunity to show one of my favorite memories from a spectacular holiday with my teenage grandchildren. The photograph posted in the Lens section is exemplary of the adventure and joy bestowed by our travels: we sustained by a sense of freedom, hence we exuded a free spirit. Well, at least that’s the way we felt.
In the photograph my grandchildren are jumping for joy. Their exuberance is clear. San Francisco opened her arms and expanded their horizons.
That free spirit allowed us to explore on foot the depth and breath of a city with so much to offer. They stretched their notion of life and its possibilities.
We absorbed. We inhaled. We laughed. We savored. We smiled. We collapsed. We kept going. We tried the new, storing stacks of adventures.
Every moment was used. Every moment was admired.
My teenage grandchildren grabbed each opportunity, and temporarily shed the East Coast that is home. They adapted to an urban center that is opposite to their everyday life. They caught that sense of Western aesthetics and culture, and held it the entire trip. Their free spirits soaring; our lives changed.
