You know you’ve been on a diet of excessive beauty when a day rolling along the California coast seems ho-hum. But after Big Sur, mere hills and valleys, distant seas and invigorating salt air are commonplace. So, instead of dramatic views I offer close-ups of the many trees and plants I found along a single stretch of California Route 227. New England may be glowing in fall colors this time of year, but California offers its own vegetative charm.

About paulefallon

Greetings reader. I am a writer, architect, cyclist and father from Cambridge, MA. My primary blog, is an archive of all my published writing. The title refers to a sequence of three yoga positions that increase focus and build strength by shifting the body’s center of gravity. The objective is balance without stability. My writing addresses opposing tension in our world, and my attempt to find balance through understanding that opposition. During 2015-2106 I am cycling through all 48 mainland United States and asking the question "How will we live tomorrow?" That journey is chronicled in a dedicated blog,, that includes personal writing related to my adventure as well as others' responses to my question. Thank you for visiting.
