My sister took this photo at the family house up in Mendocino this weekend – I totally missed out!! Trips up the Mendocino are always the best. Surrounded by beauty, away from sirens, stupid drivers, phones ringing, and neighbors screaming. There USED to be a gorgeous view of the Pacific, but SOMEONE decided to build a house there. The silence at night is deafening, but it’s what I crave when I’m in the city or in suburbia. Creepiness factor: the pitch black night staring at me through the windows of whatever bedroom I sleep in and reminds of that movie with Liv Tyler…The Strangers. You know the one, with the group of psychos that kills for fun. OK, so I have not watched it, but still it’s scary! Imagine being in the middle of a forest and anxiety is like a flurry when all you can think about is “When will I see a face in the window?” Haha, yes my imagination runs wild. It happens when you’re surrounded by beauty. You just can’t NOT think about fun and crazy things.
