I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty-handed

I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

I hope you dance
I hope you dance

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Living might mean taking chances but they're worth taking
Lovin' might be a mistake but it's worth making

Don't let some hell-bent heart leave you bitter
When you come close to selling out reconsider
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

I hope you dance
(Time is a wheel in constant motion always)
I hope you dance
(Rolling us along)
I hope you dance
(Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder)
I hope you dance
(Where those years have gone)

I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

Dance
I hope you dance

Torrey Pines Road which abuts the Torrey Pines State Reserve, home to the rarest pine in North America, native to two restricted areas of California separated by 175 miles of ocean. Native trees today are found only on one spot on Santa Rosa Island and on the sandy bluffs of northern San Diego, where many are protected in the Torrey Pines State Reserve area.

I confess to driving this road weekly and no longer "seeing" its beauty. I decided one morning to go off the beaten path outside the Reserve and found some lovely landscapes including the valley on the left, Coastal sage scrub and Chaparral, wildflowers, along with a variety of birds. The morning light brought about a wild and golden scene. This scene has lost some of its splendor since Southern California has been in a severe drought for several years. In years when the winter rains do fall, the entire area is covered in yellow mustard and colorful wildflowers.

What animal is two-feet long, runs like the wind, loves cactus, catches lizards, snakes, and scorpions . . . and has feathers? What if I add that it is the most famous bird of the Southwest and has had a long run as a cartoon character? Roadrunner, of course!

After living in Southern California for a couple of decades, I was excited to finally see my first Roadrunner.

The most famous bird in the southwest, featured in folklore and cartoons, known by its long tail and expressive crest. The Roadrunner walks and runs on the ground, flying only when necessary. It can run 15 miles per hour, probably with much faster spurts when chasing a fast-running lizard or other prey.

Mourning cloak
This beautiful butterfly is related to the angle wings, (Angle-wings refers to a group of well-named butterflies with very angular edges to their wings) and has irregular wing borders just like those insects. The mourning cloak, however, has a unique and gorgeous appearance. The ground color is deep purple-brown; the borders are yellow, but just inside that is a band of black with royal-blue spots. It's a subtle but sublime insect, and while it's common in North America, it's regarded as one of the rare prizes of collectors in the UK, where it has been known as The Camberwell Beauty.
