I'm still rambling around in my mind at Catalina. Maybe because San Diego has had several overcast days, which is so similar to the Island's drizzly atmosphere?

Nevertheless the one day I was trudging and dragging all my art equipment along, I spied a wild growth of prickly pears while searching for those pesky patches of wildflowers. A thing of beauty on a small hillside and backdropped by colorful clouds. And as so many things in life, if one gets too close to a thing of beauty you could be pricked by tiny thorns.

Hey, this could be a good metaphor relating to life! Beware...
