Big Sur and Monterey Bay, California

“On soft Spring nights I’ll stand in the yard under the stars – Something good will come out of all things yet – And it will be golden and eternal just like that – There’s no need to say another word.”
― Jack KerouacBig Sur



Sierra Mar, Post Ranch Inn


Pfeiffer Beach
Famed for its purple sand


In honor of our trip, here’s my own hand at poetry.

Otters lay in their seaweed beds, drifting.

a glorious spray of salty water on the rocks,

where coast meets mountain.

where the trees swath the leaf-coated ground in cool shade,

and when the sun sets, ancient stars move across the sky,

telling us we are nothing.
