This is my part of the earth, my daily view above my neighborhood. Santa Monica Mountains, a rugged coastal range between us and Los Angeles. Two years ago, all the vegetation burned off and because we are enduring a drought, there is still not much green up there.
I checked on the definition of a talisman. Talisman means an object which is endowed with magical powers. According to that definition, I have no talisman. But I own a beloved and favorite necklace which is one piece of jewelry which I actually wear on occasion. Celtic Cross in sterling silver.
August Break is a meme which I found HERE through Tracy's blog. I don't have flickr or instagram accounts, so this is the only place I am posting. No links.
