Honoring Flag Day USA

The flag of the United States has not been created by rhetorical sentences in declarations of independence and in bills of rights. It has been created by the experience of a great people, and nothing is written upon it that has not been written by their life. It is the embodiment, not of a sentiment, but of a history.” 

~Woodrow Wilson, 28th President of the United States

Self Portrait at Cannery Row’s Beach – Looking across Monterey Bay

“The tide goes out imperceptibly. The boulders show and seem to rise up and the ocean recedes leaving little pools, leaving wet weed and moss and sponge, iridescence and brown and blue and China red.”

~ John Steinbeck, Cannery Row

Summer reading: I just finished reading Cannery Row (thoroughly enjoyed it) and have now moved on to John Steinbeck’s Travels With Charley (loving it!).  Steinbeck sure did know how to weave a captivating  tale!

What’s on your summer beach reading list? I’d love to hear your recommendations!
