on my own again

It’s raining in Santa Barbara.

I stayed in this town with my love and her boyfriend for almost three years when this time came to a surprising and abrupt end.

I am perched in the hills over the city for days, looking down and inward, trying to get my arms around the new situation.

After about two weeks I decide to leave the area with a beautiful sunset, wavy clouds from the nearby wild fire.

Soaking on my way north at Franklin Hot springs.

After a few days warming up I am continuing towards Ukiah in northern California.
