A crazy thing happened as I walked along the beach. My thoughts turned to another walk years earlier. We were in Pebble Beach, Caifornia, a land of beauty and magic for me.
Transported in time, I could see the lush trees and hedges lining the road we were walking down one sunny day when we suddently came upon a beautiful gate. It was cracked open. Should we take a look? What would you do?
My brother-in-law, Larry, walked up with gusto and looked in. He wanted to see and so he did.
I was too shy, too afraid someone would come along. I immediately conjured up several disturbing 'what if' scenarios in my head. What if I was called out? What if someone drove up? What if there was a dog?
Larry was always optimistic. He expected the best to happen. When everyone else saw gray, he saw things through rose colored glasses. He walked in the land of blue skies.
